so I am starting another week of revision, and i wondered if people find music a good thing to listen to while revising? If you do use music what sort do you listen to ? :confused:

Yes and no. Classical worked for me for years but now I get too into the music to focus properly But Mozart is apparently very good for helping you with maths...

I do, not loud music though, I'll have it on quietly. Without music I tend to dysfunction a bit :rolleyes:

Umm...either classical/romantic era piano pieces [debussy/chopin/liszt/elgar] or acoustic tracks like The Verve and Turin Brakes. Nothing I want to get up and dance to - that would be disastrous.

I put on the radio station on the TV and turn it off if i don't like the song. It can be very distracting when they talk or the news is on. Probably an uninterupted CD is better. And I find it better if its very quiet. I get bored if there is no music, and i'd probably just stop revising.

I listened to the donnie darko album when i was revising, but had it on low, there was alot of piano music on it and i found that it calmed my nerves....

i just put the radio on quietly in the background, or if i'm in the library i listen to my anthology pieces for music - revising two things at once! i don't really notice what's on but i like to have something kinda burbling in the background.

NO IT DOESN'T. I had a philosophy exam this morning (whicdh went ok) but my revision was disrupted yesterday by watching that great performance of Don Giovanni on BBC 2. I just didn't have the heart to turn it off. (wasn't the guy who played leporello wonderful?)

classical. or just anything that i know i'll get up to. i.e. if you play senior junior will you concentrate?!?!

anyhows, remember "test the nation" people who listned to classical music scored higher IQs, so it must mean something!

I thought the triplet who listened to classical music scored the lowest. The one who listened to rock scored second and the one who listened to none scored highest :confused:
