Any tips or tactics for making school easier?
    #11407683 - 11/07/09 10:32 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

I'm taking a bunch of hard classes this year and its beating me down. What are some tactics for learning and making it easier to do homework? - avoiding stress and all of that jazz?
I am doing homework all the time, studying for AP chem, AP physics, Human biology, and 1060. Its a bitch.
any tips?

This and if by AP you mean you're in high school...

:lmafo::lol::rofl2:

High school is a straight up joke.  If you are having trouble, get READY for university.

Not having trouble with grades and concepts. Just doing all of the work sucks.
2 AP science classes, 1 college class, and then human biology is the same course as a college class.. we just don't get college credit for it.

It is time consuming and I don't like it so I want to find a way to avoid all the stress, etc.

Maybe university is so hard because you took high school as a joke and didn't take any serious classes? :P

I had a 92% average in grade 12 with virtually no attendance.  They teach the same concept in class every day for a week.  I only need to go to one class a week to learn it :shrug:

I honestly don't see how you can find it hard.  Just don't do the stupid waste of time homework, and the work you are getting stressed about disappears. Most work isn't for marks.

adderall




this. but try not to get addicted unless you have a script.  i dont think i'm addicted, but i need to take it (well actually vyvanse in my case) everyday and i have a script, so if thats what happens, i'm okay with it. withdrawals shouldnt be too bad as its only 40mg.

also, for stress management. excersize and frequent breaks help (i f ind smoking breaks help but i wouldnt recommend taking up smoking just for school). there are also really helpful chemicals. I take about 468mg of Kava Kava root(140mg kavalactones) and 700mg of chamomile when i come down from my meds and get super anxious, but they're good for any time you feel stressed but dont want the groggyness that comes with xanax. (sometimes i take .125 mg of xanax when i'm feeling so overwhelmed and anxious that i cant study)

other than that...just keep your head down. and dont cheat.

also look into the meditation concept of Mindfulness.  I just started reading a book called "The Miracle of Mindfulness" today and i can already see the benefit and future applications of the practice.  Its a really good tool for concentration.

good luck

How hard is it to get modafinil/adrafinil, etc at a decent price... do they prescribe it for this sort of thing?

study.

...the whole experience is (and is as) a profound piece of knowledge.  It is an indellible experience; it is forever known.  I have known myself in a way I doubt I would have ever occurred except as it did.

Smith, P.  Bull. Menninger Clinic (1959) 23:20-27; p. 27.

...most subjects find the experience valuable, some find it frightening, and many say that is it uniquely lovely.

Adranafil is legal in the US.  You have to order it from overseas though.  It metabolizes to Modafinil (Provigil) which is controlled.  But Adranafil isn't controlled.
