Another free Study Tip When I do not feel like studying, I just start thinking about great persons like Albert Einstein who are examples of genius. This gives me inspiration to study.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors Find a comfortable area, preferably one with a desk that provides space for materials, books and other necessary items. The chair should provide adequate comfort and height for the desk. Another criterion to consider for a suitable place is one that limits distractions (i.e. not near the phone, kitchen, family room, etc.) I find that as little stimuli as possible allows me much better concentration.
