What publication is that? If it's not explaining what した is you need to pick miscellaneous different. (I would certainly ditch any kind of book that provides "shee-tah" together the pronunciation because that した.)

勉強した。benkyou shita. To have actually studied. (past tense) 勉強しなかった。benyou shinakatta. To have not studied (past tense) 勉強します。benkyou shimasu. To examine (present tense) 勉強しません。benkyou shimasen. To not study (present tense)

So to broaden on the other users answer, 勉強 by itself is a noun an interpretation "studying", favor 勉強が好き (I choose studying), but in addition to する (to do), it deserve to be made right into a so-called Suru-verb, together so 勉強をする (or much more commonly just 勉強する, dropping the を) which means something choose "to do studying"

する conjugates irregularly, and した is it's previous tense.
