did you know studying for 50 minutes and then taking a break for ~5-10 minutes helps keep maximum retention, as opposed to studying for long hours without end?

    The problem for me is that I study for 5 minutes and take a 2 minute break. Then 5 more minutes of studying, and another 2 minute break. It doesn't accomplish much that way. But, fortunately, I don't need much help remembering things.

    i'm doing that right now actually. im studying chem because i have to take to (rather forced to) take the regents for it in august, and im going over molecular forumula's, clicking refresh on this site, going back, getting nothing done, and repeat.

    it's quite...unproductive

    This is how my brain makes me memorize your statement.
    ---> break- 5*10=50 study

    Its quite helpful that my brain is mathematically oriented.

    regents = subject specific state mandated tests

    Reminded me of R.L.Stine's 'I Live In Your Basement'.
    Anyone read it?
  • asian sensationasian sensation Registered User Posts: 515 Member
    i think that's the beauty of CC and us CCer's

    we won't mind the relation of the thread title to the content of it until later in the thread, lol

    anyway, at least you clicked it and got valuable studying advice ;)

    and how does that thread make your horny? LOL, the thread title sounds creepy/stalkerish. i haven't read 'I live in your basement,' I thought more of Disturbia or something when making the title lol

    Hello Mr./Ms. Robber-dudeness, could you quiz me on these terms? What? Certainly, the TV is just down the hall and to your right.... but don't you have a TV at your house?
