Just wanted to know other people's experiences and personal findings. I use the pill version of caffeine (coffee is too god damn expensive!).

Good grief - can you still buy ProPlus?! That takes me back! Next thing you'll be saying you can still buy Sun In!

Students taking pills rather than drinking delicious coffee.

This is what is wrong with the world.

Unfortunately I'm resistant to it, at least in coffee or energy drink form.

I think Sun In is gone forever but you can definitely get ProPlus in Superdrug! Though I also got some caffeine powder at Bestival last year (less dodgy than that sounds...) so they are clearly trying to innovate still as well :lol:

Yes, caffeine is a must! I usually drink Monster, Red Bull, Rockstar, or Relentless.

I like drinking actual coffee, it just makes studying and pulling all-nighters a little bit more pleasant.

Coffee is lovely. I don't drink it as much now because I'm not studying for exams but when I was, I had about 4-5 a day and it just helped me get through it. I would always wake up feeling like sh*t because I barely had any sleep. Turning on the kettle and making some coffee helped make my mornings a bit better and it forced me to stay awake and not crawl back into bed.

Nice academic study you linked for that vague statement!

Yup, coffee and Redbull. They don't work and only make me sleepy. I guess it's all psychological

I can't stand the taste of coffee and find pills don't seem to work for me unless i take loads. Found a good new product called FireStar that is a direct to mouth powder. It's not that expensive and seems to keep me up. I avoid energy drinks as much as possible as don't like all the crap they contain.

I just drink loads of coffee. When I'm in the library I take coffee sachets and a thermos and just fill it with boiling water from the canteen

I've found coffee very helpful for afternoon/evening studying (and I drink it anyway - I'm from a family of enthusiastic coffee consumers...), but after a certain point of tiredness and brain fog I've found that it doesn't help much - you stay more awake but still have a shortened attention span and struggle to process information compared with not being tired in the first place. Great as a sophisticated beverage, great as iced coffee, great for short-term bursts of effort but definitely sub-optimal as a long-term strategy.

For me coffee only makes a difference if I'm about to fall asleep. I do usually sip on coffee or tea while I study.
