I study a lot and I have never learned any technique that would help me and I would employ it regularly. It's way too often pure chaos, a lot of cramming. I am usually curious about the things that I don't have to study at the moment, have troubles with motivation and get down for all nights because I can't procrastinate anymore; I usually use coffee, and sometimes pseudoephedrine in normal doses (not exceeding those appropriate for decreasing mucus excretion). The latter is helpful a lot if I manage to not get manic about things and stay on track, it increases retention.
I use mnemonics a lot for stupid stuff that is not logical; good ones will stick forever, I also make a lot of crappy ones for enumerative details that stay just long enough for an exam. They make me somewhat more familiar and make it easier for me to really remember something once I encounter the subject again.
Reading calmly something that you're interested in in situation when you have an excess of time to learn it, going through it with understanding instead of stressful dwelling on details, makes it so that you don't have to remember mechanically almost anything when you re-read it. To my surprise, other people around me tend to dislike long, verbose texts and prefer more concise forms, do a lot of underlining or notes. That doesn't do much to me. I get books from the library that have most of the text underlined by someone and it's just baffling.
Sometimes further reading is helpful a lot and I just need to associate the theory with something more practical for the theoretical details to stick or get me more curious. It's probably not time efficient, but I really dislike mechanical learning. If I can't be curious about something, then I just do sleepless nights of studying and filling ashtrays interrupted only by walking in circles and saying oh fuck oh fuck oh fuck I won't manage to do all this stuff on time.
So I really have no technique, I either want to learn something so I don't need any protips and just read up, or I don't want to and end up having no other choice than to sit down and learn.>>571>might
Anything might or might be, we don't know what we don't know. I don't know the ingredients list of EnergyDrink Sugarfree, but if it comes to sweeteners that I'm familiar with, like aspartame or acesfulame K, nothing suggests that there would be anything wrong with them. HGF, on the other hand, is pure soykaf, so I guess it's better to go with sugar free.
