Dr. Bell's Study Tip #1- Where to Study
Knowing where and when you study best is as important as the studying itself. Do you need total quiet, or do you need stimuli? If silence works, get earplugs, and find a place to study with minimum distractions – away from siblings, TV, and other noise. Shut off your phone and the Internet so you are not tempted. If you do better with some background music and stimulus, put on a soft CD, preferably something without lyrics that may distract you.
