Hi there rmnrmn!!! Well during my college days,what I am doing before studying is do first all the things that I want.Two days before an exam I'll play and play the games that I like to play all day then one day before the exam I am going to spent the whole day in studying. You can't concentrate in your studies becoz you are distracted by the thoughts of the things that you wanted to do.So what you need to do is do first all the things that you like and then after that give your full force in studying.

Its all the in the mind. If you tell yourself to focus on studying then you will be able to do so. You'll just have to get rid of all the other things in your mind. And when you study, make sure that your desk is clean so there wont be any distractions.

I am totally the same as you. I always cram on last moment. But i try my best to keep little notes every week which turns out to be great help at the last moment. If you are practical enough, you must go through you notes and tutorials every week and keep yourself updated about you study. I hope you do good.

humm.... sometimes it is not ur favorite subject. you can write down a note that make you understand each section you go through. draw a picture or some guide lines that you might learn from school on note-taking and you will be able to understand most of your homework or lessons. Another thing, you should clear up your mind before you step in to your homework... dont think too much and cell phone and computer must be turn off(if the homework doesn't require computer)... Music should be off. well, when I was in school...

You can probably relax for a while, give sometime to meditation, and then go back to study. If you are clear about your goals and your ambitions in life and keep it as a reminder before you go study, i am sure much of the problem is solved.

One way to concentrate on studying is to remove all distractions.mute the phone or let your family members pick it up and close the door and be in a silent atmosphere.this helps me the best to study better.

Dear friend, I could see that a better life with better meditation could help a lot. The mind is freed from other thoughts and diverted to something we need. This can be attained through better way of meditation. Moreover if there is any study problems I feel it would better consult with those experts. There are lots of different problems for students while learning.

Hi rmnrmn That reminds me of me in early 1990s - when I was a student. I would while away most of the time, never care to even attend any classes, forget the reading. But the last 24 hours of the examination and I would be like I have to read out everything available on this planet related to my subject... But my subjects and interests were always different. Kind of wrong man in the wrong shoes and I never cared. Even life was easy those days as against now. I would suggest that you make out some time schedule to study say aroun 2-3 hours a day regularly to save on the last moment read. If you have a habit of getting up early, early morning is good and if you have a habit of going to bed late night, try the late hours of night... anything you can find easy to start with.

We need much time to study and to remember knowledge. So, we don't need to study much before an exam if we have studied well, we only need to read carefully. But if you didn't study before, you should learn careful in order that you can get a good result.

Hey there! Having troubles with your concentration eh? Hmmm.. When I have an exam, I study like 3 or 4 days before an exam. During these days, my concentration is not as good as before a day or two before the exam. But when you study earlier, even if you're not that concentrated, you will still remember some things. Also, when you study, don't take it really really seriously. Your objective should be to learn... If you learn something, there's a big chance of you remembering it. Also, learn to love what you learn.

Since January I have taken three classes, Swedish, English and Mathematics. I finshed the Mathematics, passed the exam. Now working on the other two classes. I take turns do a few assignments on my Swedish and on my English. when I have a test I prepare myself for it at least 2-3 days before it. I write and I read and I do it over and over again until the test day. I like to have a priority list what is most important to study. I visualize the good grades to reach my goals as a motivation.

If you have to concentrate more on your studies you have to be free from emotions first. Hold the thought that you have to achieve something. Then you concentrate perfectly on your studies.

My advice is study everyday about your lesson, scan your notes on a day and as it goes increase the time bit by bit. what you need is time management. That's all try it. It will work if you focus your self with it.

There are a lot of ways which you can study more efficiently. First, you have to identify what is hindering or stopping you from studying. There are a lot of factors like vices, other activities and stuff. Second, you have to control your temptations. Whether or not it could be games or even mylotting, you should remember that you must concentrate on your priorities first. Third, find for some place that you find comfortable for studying. For more information, read my blog, http://yidiyada.blogspot.com . There is a section there on tips on how to study well. Good luck and Happy mylotting!
