    I dunno what sort of thing works for you, but I find that mind maps and diagrams work for most people since they're pretty neat, graphic and straightforward. I personally like rhymes.
    thx ima try my hardest to keep focused. and another question, while doing work (not for test, just normal homework) is it bad to listen to music, like does it throw ur concentration off?

    No way! listen to music all you want!!. It's different person to person, but some people it helps heaps!

    Me personally, when I put music on to study it helps me relax and get rid of stress, it gets to the point when I don't even realise what song I have on because I'm so focus on work lol.

    I 100% agree with the timetable part. I am going to write one up for myself tonight actually, I'm nearing the end of the semester and as you can imagine all the assignments and exams due dates are comming up.

    And another thing. DON'T STRESS!! lol I know it's harder said then done, but you can really bring yourself down physically and mentally, you can easily get sick and around that time of live it's the last think you need.

    One of my lecturers gave us some tips to staying stress free maybe they can help some people here ^^

    1. Eat Healthly
    2. Exercise
    3. Time management (like with a time table)

    He said heaps more but I can't remember ^^;. oh! and exercise really does work, makes you feel so much more refreshed. I'm also not a believe in staying up late to memorise things the day before the exam, I believe it defeats the purpose and makes you stress out more, so make sure you manage your time well ^^

    by the way..I'm not perfect at these things..I've been up late many a times to finish a assignment or study..my own time management skills are shot lol

    THAT depends on the person. Some people concentrate better with music on, some don't. Some people eat to help them concentrate, some people have a cup of coffee handy at all times. I can't have any noise at all when I study, it really distracts me.

    Keep in mind that your studiesare firstandif you have to give up some laisure time..... do it! Sacrifices are good when it i sfor study. It is worthy!!!!!
    And make sure and do not, by anymeans,procrastinate............. even more is you have more than 6 classes at the time. The stress on that time can go up and it can literally kill you...

    Do not ever procrastinate. That is the worst thing you could when projects are due. And when it comes to studying. It isn't bright to start studying two to three days before the actual exam. Cramming does sometimes work, but not all the time, and not for everyone. You should study short amounts of information and take breaks in between, instead of studying the entire five pages of notes in just two hours.

    I hate it when schools decide to give you projects along the timeline of when exams are going to be taking place. Let's not forget the all loved, "homework" that you have to complete as well. So basically a student is screwed if they're not organized, or if they're used to procastinating. Because they have homework that needs to be done, projects that need to be worked on and completed, and final exams that are worth studying for.

    And adults have the guts to say kids have no reason to be stressed.

    Some people like it super quiet when studying but for me music keeps me focused and awake. It helps me want to study more and stay on task or else procrastinating time.

    Haha well only reasons adults say kids have no rights to stress is cause you get even worse stress when you finish college and high school....poof adult world time. Lets just say the RL plus work, bills, family can make people say argh stress to the max. Don't get me started with full time college and full time job lol.

    You folks talk like procrastination is something you can just simply not do or turn off. Everyone has their own formulate to success, so I'll give you a few examples I've heard over the years.

    - Isolate yourself completely in a room without distractions. If your home has a clean restroom, stay there. So now, you have no excuse to take a restroom break when in fact you just wanna turn on the tv.

    - Study in a group with friends, only disciplined ones though. It is a lot like hitting the gym, fat people find it easier when they have friends along side. With friends you can clear up any questions you don't understand now.

    - Study the subjects that will come up first and study the others in order.

    Finally, here's what NOT to do.

    You could have music on, but avoid having songs. If you're someone who can easily lose focus, that song could be stuck in your head by finals time. Trying to remember what oligopoly is with the song Still Fly in your head doesn't help.
