When I was in my Nursing Fundamentals class today, we were learning about different study techniques to help us through school. Towards the end of class one of the students mentioned he had heard about studying while listening to classical music. It is supposed to help retain the information better. Has anyone heard of this, or tried it? I started to do this today. I am no spring chicken, I am 45 and need all the help I can get to help retain. Ha ha! Any suggestions? Not only that but one of the professors told us during orientation she tells her students to read their chapters a minimum of 5 times.
