- Lack of sleep actually improves focus!
Scientists report that replacing sleep with studying has shown higher test scores! It’s called “Brain Focus Redirection.” Basically, whatever energy would have been put into sleep is redirected and put purely into helping you cram and memorize that fleeting information!
- Starbucks Doubleshot Espresso: A Healthy Alternative to Breakfast!
That’s right, proven by health and nutrition researchers at Harvard, you can now drink Starbucks instead of an actual meal. It includes all the vitamins and energy you need for a sufficient breakfast all in the convenience of a tiny, overpriced can. It’s like a meal, but in a can.
- Multitasking works!
Through a scientific process called Neuromultization, your brain operates more efficiently thinking about many different tasks, allowing it to work at a much faster speed! By browsing Twitter, reading Powerpoint notes, and scanning through your textbook simultaneously, you can maximize your study time!
- Take study breaks every 15 minutes!
There’s nothing more rewarding after a hardcore studying spree of 15 minutes than to check your newest Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter posts for another 30 minutes! By doing short bursts of studying, your brain essentially works in a “sprinting” method. It sprints with its energy, then must recover for another sprint. This theory is derived from marathon runners, as an efficient strategy amongst runners is the sprint-and-walk method.
- CRAM, CRAM, CRAM!
Your brain can only retain information for so long; remember that thing about elephants in the first tip? Exactly, you already forgot. While the sprinting method is studying, it can work both ways. Take a 2 hour break right before your 1 hour study sprint! This works most efficiently when your test is within a few hours of first opening up your notes. This sense of urgency sends shockwaves through the brain allowing it to focus on retaining information! This process is called the “Mentaltime Continuum”, your brain realizes the time remaining until the test and practically puts your body into autopilot! You’ll be aceing that final without even knowing what you’re doing!
Good luck and remember these tips to make sure you pass those exams!
