It is true that the level of student’s learning in academics may be portrayed by the grades he earns for a period of learning has been done. We can say that the grades of a student indicate how much learning he gained.

If they find a style cannot be successful, they would find another way. And finally if we have our own habits in studying, learning would be easier than we think, like what Frank A. Clark said, “A habit is
