    SAM's Study Tips No 5: You can never study too hard or too much - but you can study too long. Take a break - give your brain the chance to absorb what you've gone over, and recharge in preparation for taking on more info.

    SAM's Study tips No 9: If you like to study to music, listen to something familiar - it'll put you in a more positive frame of mind. Also go for something that soothes the mind. Sigur Ros rather than Slipknot. I'd also avoid Katy Perry, but that's nothing to do with studying...
