Shameless website promotion aside, I study by making notes of my notes. I'll often go through everything and rewrite it in Microsoft Word. And then I'll make flashcards as I'm rewriting my notes. It takes a long time, but I've found that rewriting everything really helps me remember stuff (rather than just rereading, where I tend to get bored and read without really paying attention).
One area where I need to improve is not procrastinating on doing this. I've tried to do it where I go home and go over that day's notes, and while it does help (and keeps me from cramming before the test), I still get behind sometimes. I'm trying to get better, though!
Edit: I should also mention that, as a pre-vet student, I haven't yet had the chance to put my studying skills to the test in vet school. I'm hoping they work, though!
