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.

Much fun.
