Student tries out concentration tip

textbookI enjoyed reading the tips for improving concentration when studying, especially the part that teaches to study in 30 minutes increments instead of studying for hours straight.I actually was able to apply this principle in my history class and it does works well.

I did both: read in 30 minutes increments and also studied for about 2 hours straight. My brain was able to keep the information more clear and I was able to remember more of the information studying for 30 minutes increments, but the information gained through studying two hours straight is less clear and the amount that I remember was less.
