I find that the human brain is not akin to a hard drive in which memory is 'filled' or 'used up', but an extraordinary organ that has no limit. If you think you might get confused with other information, it just means you didn't know it before hand.
Also, extra reading (a couple of paragraphs either side of key points is good for understanding the topic, as well being useful blagging material in an essay question).

Yeah I was/am exactly the same. I find it really difficult to focus when I'm working at home, but the exact opposite when I'm at the library or at someone else's house!

Very interesting. I got a little software timer a few days ago, but I haven't used it yet! I will definitely try this
I've found that at my worst, I write a few words, or read a sentence
and then dash to read something totally irrelevant on here, or Facebook maybe (most likely here, I hate Facebook). wtf.
The pomodoro technique forbids you from distracting yourself, which is good. For the 25 minutes, you belong to the clock and have to imagine that if you stop working something bad will happen. Charlie Brooker wrote a really good article about it, which was where I first read about it.
