I find these are great suggestions and tips for concentration. I especially like the one about having a place to study specifically and short breaks.

This is a great resource because it lists a wide range of common distractions (both external and internal) and simple ways to deal with them. It also helps you evaluate if there are factors in your studying that impact your productivity. Check it out!
Tips for improving concentration
Chemeketa Community College, Salem, Oregon
I 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.
Keeping your focus

I never would've thought the middle of the night was the best time to study for me. However this website confirmed that! There's less going on with the outside world to distract me and my minds at its sharpest then. I will definitely be doing the majority of my studying in the middle of the night now! This websites great just because of all the small tips. I never would've thought to take short breaks during my studying.
