Decide Your Study Needs
Things to consider:
1. Do you need silence or background noise?
2. Do you study best sitting of lying down?
3. Do you prefer room light or direct light from a table lamp?
4. Do you study best alone or with a person or group?
5. Do you prefer studying indoors or outdoors?
6. Do you like to study in a public place or at home?
CLAIM YOUR TERRITORY
Remember to set up your workplace with needed things instead of interrupting study time to find something you need.
MUSIC
It's alright to listen to music, but choose wisely!
*Educational psychologist have discovered that music with a rhythm of 60 beats per minute helps you learn! HOWEVER, most contemporary music have 100-140 beats which lowers your brain's ability to retain information!
AVOID BOREDOM
As our brain receives information, it is passed on to our short term memory. The information from our short term memory must be passed on to our long term memory or we end up "forgetting" most/all of the information. Of course, your brain's ability to do this depends on how you feel - that is why eating well and having enough rest before studying is so important!

*If you are bored, short term memory is lost very quickly and can not be passed on! The best way to study is to limit study periods to the length of your concentration span. This gives the brain the best chance to store what you're studying in long-term memory.
CONCENTRATION SPAN
The time between starting a task to the time we find our minds wandering.
The best way to learn is to limit study periods to the length of our concentration span. This give the brain the best chance to store what we are studying in long-term memory.
**NEVER study beyond your concentration-span! Take a 5 minute break and listen to music, have a snack, refresh yourself.
