    Default Overnight Studying

    Done it before? Tips? Suggestions?

    I've only done it once... but I REALLY REALLY need to cram for the two finals I have coming up soon (a bunch of names and dates I need to remember.)

    So to those who have done it countless of times... what did you do to stay awake?

    Have a little snack. Study until you feel like conking out, take a 1-2 hour nap, get up study some more, take the test, then pass out. No alcohol and caffeine.... makes you crash...

    Learn how all the concepts, people, events work together and the details will come flooding to you during the test.... that's how I learn from cramming. If it's math or logic, an all nighter is seriously bad.

    Good snacks to cram with?

    What I am studying isn't math or logic , just..... lots of names, dates, and people. @.@

    I've actually devise a way I am going to cram this material.

    haha, maybe caffeine doesn't make you crash? You lucky man! lol For me, I get energized and then have a major CRASH and fall asleep for the whole night.

    I've done it a lot. Doing college the hard way (after kids, full time job) didn't give me a lot of options. One is I always tried to take a nap prior. I would lay down at 7 or 8pm and set my alarm for 10 or so. Coffee, a snack, music or tv but nothing distracting. I use to keep the local weather radar with that robotic voice on. For whatever reason it was enough sound to be soothing but not too much. With my last couple coding classes and prior to taking the RHIT certifications, I had to cut it into blocks and study one at a time. Too many numbers to remember all at once.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Many many times. Always had the bad habit of cramming, but I'm also a night person and do my best work overnight. If you want "good" snacks I would say fruit, carrot sticks, cheese, and peanuts/ peanut butter crackers. Cottage cheese if you like it. All snacks that are filling and will keep you going. (I can't say I was good about that, I was into the candy and scotch and redbulls and voila, we developed a panic disorder in college! ) Be really general and conceptual with the learning if at all possible for the topic. Music, power naps, cool showers, stretching and meditating. You should be good to go!
