As a recent graduate I agree that the best way before beginning any mode of studying is setting a plan; this will act as a framework throughout your studying. A good way of managing your time you could make up a realistic timetable that will schedule your personal study timetable, you should also be disciplined and adhere to it accordingly. This will enable you to be well organized and always stay on track with your schedule and complete assignments and get ready for tests. Additionally, if your school has a study center I strongly advise you visit it if you have any problems in your studies. They could offer you tutoring in areas where you face academic hiccups. Make use of the internet to find resources that help students study. This is by providing learning materials and also study skills that will help you as a student develop study skills and learn how to study properly.
