    I can't revise unless I got some upbeat music going.. got some Old Skool club classics CD on at the moment.. and I'm jigging along as I'm typing - getting up so often to bounce around my room for a break.

    I need music to revise, just not upbeat music or I'll get up and start dancing to it.

    the brain reacts in different ways to different sonance. Some people like to sleep with music on while others cannot. It differs from person to person but there is nothing wrong with it. When I was doing my degree I listened to quite mellow music to study.

    I used to HAVE to have some background noise. These days I need silence because that's what the exam is going to be like. Otherwise I end up singing along and getting distracted

    That might actually be useful!

    Rememebr what you were singing to and link it to what you're revising.

    Then rememebr the song in the exam - and you've got your answers!

    Music good, television bad.

    What I listen to depends on mood - I might have a bit of Mozart one day, and Motorhead the next.

    I used to try and link music to information, but i end up getting distracted, even with stuff like Strauss on. But with Manowar, AC/DC etc i cant actually concentrate. Sounds like its back to the silence.

    Music is good for me when I'm doing math. It keeps my mind from wandering. I can't listen to it when I'm doing something like writing a paper though.

    it's the other way round for me! i must listen to music when im doing anything apart from maths. somehow music distracts me from doing maths...

    But according to psychology it's easier to access information if you can recreate the atmosphere you learnt it in. Hence why learning at school, in rows, at desks is meant to be better than learning, for example, on a computer or outside (unless they change the way we take exams of course). Learning to music may stop you getting distracted, but it may not be that beneficial.
