Variety is the Spice of Educational Life
Check out this article from the New York Times, which discusses how new research overturns some old ideas about the best ways to study. Apparently variety doesn't just spice up your life; it also makes your studying much more effective. Quite a fascinating article--and helpful, too, if you're looking for ways to improve your study habits. Professors will also be happy to know that tests which require student recall are very effective tools for learning. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/07/health/views/07mind.html?_r=1&hpw.
