Hey, since I've now officially finished my finals I've found myself with an abudance of free time. Free time that I'm unaccustomed to, so instead of studying i'm interested in hearing how others go about studying - the entire process in general. For example, do you attend lectures? Or do you do completely independent study. When you're studying - do you avail of caffeinated beverages: coffee, espresso, tea, energy drinks (red bull, full throttle, etc) As you're reading material - Do you simply encode the information directly from the textbook / handouts, or as you're reading do you make your own notes to study later? If you do make your own notes, which I don't, I'd think you'd lose time making notes on such sheer volumes of material. (i.e. anatomy) Do you listen to music while studying? An interesting tidbit, a psychology study showed that more extroverted people listened to music as they studied, opposed to introverts. Extroverts were shown to need more stimulation to acheive focus, hence always communicating with others, etc. Independent, Group study, or a combination of both? Short quick bursts of study, i.e 40 mins to an hour, then break? Or just non-stop reading for hours on end. (I think the latter has been shown to be less effective, but study is highly individual.) All-nighters, or do you absolutely require X amount of hours of sleep per night. Any other comments or habits are appreciated! It's interesting material, post your habits.
