1) Minimize distractions - texting while studying, chatting on facebook, distracting environments will kill you.

2) Keep a study log and set daily and weekly goals - time only counts if you are studying. This way, you can hold yourself accountable. Also, set goals for what you want to get through. You will have to figure out what pace you need to be going to get through your material. Also, prioritize...sometimes, no matter how much time you study, certain things have to be dropped or de-emphasized. This is especially important in college.

3) Study with a partner - will help you if they push you and hurt you if they are easily distracted or lack discipline. Choose carefully! If you can't find a good one, you are better off studying solo.

4) Motivate yourself to be genuinely interested in what you are studying. EVERYTHING can be interesting, and the more you understand it, the more interesting it will be.

5) Take intermittent breaks, but set a 15 minute break timer. This way you don't loose too much time with excessive breaks. Use your breaks to catch up on texing, facebook, etc and all the stuff that you will not be doing when you are studying.

6) Talk out loud and pretend you are explaining what you are learning to someone else. This will help you solidify concepts and make things fun, although, there is a small risk that those who overhear you doing this will think you've lost it.

6) Study 5/6 days, then rest one or two. You've earned some time off....hopefully. But seriously, if everyday you are going as strong as you can, you'll burn out and find it harder to concentrate, which equates to loss of efficiency and less free time. You can enjoy your time off knowing you just had 5 or 6 productive days and that you are about to have 5 or 6 more.

Alway's remember to take a break now and the, have a cup of coffee, take a walk. If you make a mistake it's not the end of the world, praise yourself for noticing your mistake. Don't look at your studies as if they are a chore, try to enjoy the work you are doing.

The only time we manage to study for a good amount of time is during the actual exams so my advice to you is to try to recreate that exam environment  by setting papers for yourself. Concentrate on a chapter and collect questions then set a time limit in which you will prepare for the exam take the exam at that exact time and mark yourself.It would not only help you study it will also show your progress. I hope this helps.

Coffee helped me a lot when I was in college and I would take small breaks in between
There were so many flavors and I would drink it with a sweet corn muffin w/butter. Then I'd go back to studying. Coffee keeps you up, alert, and slim. But if your eyes are really tired its best to get 1/2 hour to an hour nap. Set your clock get up and study again.

If you need to study for long hours--eat some protein and be sure to get enough sleep the day before.  A bit of caffeine works for short periods of time.  I have used the "five hour energy shots" and they have helped.  If you need something more potent--adderall works VERY well. = )

If this helped, give a thumbs up! = )

Every body has his own style. When I was student, I used to switch on my music player while studying. Frequent cups of tea/coffee along with cookies after 2-3 hours were helpful. In this way I used to study for 18-20 hours continuously. But if you do not like music then you should develop interest in the subject and study without examination stress.
