Even though a good meal should have several servings of veggies and also fruits, the easiest way to make your brain work immediatly is by eating sugar. Refined sugar goes to the brain in little time. That´s why it is so adictive. Brain needs fuel to function and refined sugar doesn´t need time to be digested. It is also a good idea to take a bit of hard candy to your exam for the same reason.
