    So yea, like the title says, where can you focus and study best? For me, it was my school library, but I graduated! So I'm struggling at home, distractions like NBA finals (GO CELTS!) but am managing day by day. How about YOU?

    24 hr starbucks. I'd study during the day at the library and then hit up starbucks from 9 to 5.

    yea, i know what you mean by distractions at home...tv, computer, siblings, parents, etc. Whenever I study at home, i study for like 45 minutes then take a 15 min. break...so inefficient. I would go to my local library but its going through renovations so I have to study at home right now.

    Good point. I am having a really hard time focusing at home, with video games and everything being a distraction. I don't know where would be a good 24 hour place besides starbucks, and I dont really want to go there because they don't have free internet. Other suggestions?

    Oh yeah, the topic.

    I go to starbucks (barnes and noble). I go to Panera Bread sometimes for free internet.

    Can't study at home.

    i would love to do that but besides the fact that slack off home, theres aloooooot of distractions. TV, phone, esp my mom wanting me to do things lol. "change the oil of my car, take out the trash, go get this from the store" looool just wont end....

    u read my mind:thumbup: we will get one in boston from the first two games, get two out of three here in LA, and the next one..... BOOOM lakers are the champions for 08

    i think public/school library would be the best place to study. I think Starbucks, panera bread, barnes & nobles or any other 24 hr places are distraction, a lot of people come and go and sometimes its just noisy if a group of people come together for lunch or something.
