    Is anyone else drinking a massive amount of water in their exams and while they're revising? I get through a litre bottle of Evian in an exam, and then have about another two litres of water at home! I find it really helps my concentration, even thought I'm taking in about double the RDA! Anyone else been drinking a lot?

    Does it improve your concentration? I thought caffeine has negative effects after a while...

    red bull is the amatuer drink. If you want the real hard stuff try strength 5 coffee and those boots energy boost capsules..

    Caffeine only makes you tired after your 3 to 4 hour boost of concentration and makes you urinate, it isn't good for you because its a stimulate, but its not bad. The only trouble is once you become an addict you have a heavy caffeine withdrawel, but its worth being stocked on caffeine and water for 3 weeks and then you quit after.

    im suprised noone has been taking omega 3 fish oils and ginseng and ginkgo biloba. There are alot of supplements for the brain floating around you know?

    lol - I have been drinking over the R.D.A too because of exams, so don't worry! :rolleyes:

    The only annoying thing about over-drinking is that I have to go to the loo before AND after each exam - people might start to think I have a water retention problem! :eek:
