What Is the Best Way to Study?

What is the best way to study? Sue Shellenbarger of the Wall Street Journal reviews the research:


  1. Bruce Charlton says:

    Yes, Yes, Yes, No.

    Oatmeal (porridge) is not slowly digested. Fat is the food group that is slowly digested, not carbs.

    Bacon, eggs and fried bread are what is required. With plenty of coffee.

  2. Todd says:

    Eat a balanced meal? The competition certainly isn’t eating oatmeal.

    Where’s the crystal meth control group? How far can wackos push the outliers?

  3. Isegoria says:

    So, the breakfast of champions is eggs and Adderall?

  4. Buckethead says:

    I’m with Bruce. Bacon, eggs and coffee and I’m full until past lunch and not hungry at all until dinner. And I feel vastly healthier since I cut out wheat.

  5. Ben says:

    Yep, go “primal”, “paleo”, “new evolution” whatever. Makes all the difference in the world. MMM MMM good.

  6. Alrenous says:

    I’m happy they didn’t screw up interpreting the ‘repeat’ idea. It’s rare. Note that schools test rarely because marking tests is generally labour-intensive.

    Archevore is clearly the best term. In any case, I wanted to know how long I could go without serious hunger pangs, but I stopped at 36 hours because…shouldn’t not eating be bad? Risky?

    It turned out great and I’m curious about what would happen to other people who tried it.
