A trick which was very usefull for me while I studied was to take a vitamine
complex (mainly vitamin-B) together with a diluted glucose drink like
grenadine (=a lot of glucose, a color and a taste). It puts my brains in
a boost tempo and I could study for longer periods. I never studied
during the year so I had to study hard during the examination period. I
think the effect is mainly because of the glucose because for your
brains it is very important not to go under the 5 mM glucose level.
