I've been advised on innumerable occasions to study without music. Never been able to concentrate without music, though. I usually pick one single album for an exam (for then I used a walkman), and listen to it over and over again.

Another exam habit is to make lists of things to do, and plans for each hour. Was never able to stick to the plan, but that didn't stop me from planning. :)

I make subject-specific playlists. Then listen to each of 'em over & over again just before each exam ;)

I need do all kinds of crazy stuff when I'm supposed to be studying: even watching a lot of movies and reading novels. People who can completely concentrate on one single thing at a time are alien to me...

I also make to-do lists, but not in detail. I know when I'm planning a schedule that it's not going to work, that I'm gonna do everything at the last minute itself; but that never stops me :)

If I were to make playlists, I'd probably not the songs on shuffle. There were times when I switched from one song to the next without realising it. I've come to realise that last-minute is sometimes the best way to go. Often I found that the only thing I remembered was what I'd done on the last day or so. Why study before that, if it's going to go waste anyway.

I always ended up writing more during exams. Watched a lot of movies during exams too. Escapism? :D

Just noticed that you've managed to install the trackback. Could you send me a txt copy of your template, so I can figure it out for myself?

Last minute is not the best way to go, it's the only way to go!

Anyways, today's paper was nice. Three hours of intensive writing has made my hand cramp up, but I think I'll clear.

Oh, and Blogger backlinks are not the same as trackback, but they're close enough. Will mail you my template, though you do need to read about the backlinks syntax...
