Are you someone who learns well from repeatedly listening to information? If so, then I might have a studying tip for you. In Word 2008, just click the little scroll in the top right area of the top toolbar (right beside "help"). You'll notice an option that reads, "Sample Automater Workflows." If you have your class notes or other important information in the currently opened Word document, just click "Convert text to audio and send to an iPod."
You'll be able to choose from several different voices (I prefer Vicki), and you will soon have your text in an audio format that you can take with you to the gym (or in the car on your way to that big exam).
