    'A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first.
    This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members.
    In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of alcohol eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few drinks!'

    Can't remember who originally said that, but it's such a great quote!

    i know a few people who use ritalin and have heard of modafinil doing similar things.

    they basically help you concentrate and do more work than make you smarter

    Hard work doesn't make you smart. That makes absolutely no sense.

    OP, there are no pills that make you smart. You'll find some that help you concetrate and help cognative functions like memory, but it's not going to turn you into some sort of genius.

    Yes, they're called nootropics or 'smart drugs'. At uni what (some) people use is Ritalin. In America they use something called Adderall which is essentially better than Ritalin, but it's banned in Europe.

    Adderall (dextroamphetamine/levoamphetamine) is a common study drug. Increases concentration levels and allows people to study for ages. Its also horifically addictive, so be bloody careful if you're gonna try it out (id reccomend against it).

    Id say try MDMA but you'll be so happy you wont want to work, you'll just end up hugging people at 2am.

    Maybe dont do drugs and just study?

    Caffeine is a nootropic, but not a very effective one. MDMA is not. Amphetamines make you more productive, in some cases, but not smarter. Ritalin, some beta blockers, and modafinil, along with most popular antipsychotics, are nootropics. Supposedly, B-vitamins are good for the brain, along with fish oils, but I'm yet to encounter a properly documented scientific paper on that hypothesis.
