A Plea for Study Help/Advice

I feel like I've lost the last 2 months to the process of getting my head meds sorted out. The panic attacks of Wellbutrin have now given way to the 5:30 AM wake-up call of Prozac. At least I know that in a week or so, I'll be back on my usual sleep schedule. Prozac and I are old, if somewhat quarrelsome, friends. I may lose my libido, and have a harder time losing weight, but at least I know it will not pull any funny stuff on me.

Now, to focus on the Massage Cert. Ugh. Judging by the numerous study guides I've got, there are going to be lots of questions on lots of topics we barely touched on in school. I need to know a ton about Chinese Medicine, hydrotherapy, macro and micronutrients of all sorts… all things I'm not actually allowed to meddle with when I have a practice. It makes no sense!

I know that many of you fine folks have a lot more formal education that I do. Can you offer any study advice? I have gone and purchased my own weight in study guides, anatomy books, flashcards, etc., but I'm kind of at a loss for study infrastructure if you follow me.

Do you find it's helpful to sit at a desk with few distracting items in view? What time of day works best? Can you point me to any references (books, sites, whatever) on study procedures that you have found helpful? It feels like I'm terribly out of practice. Any thoughts you might have will be of immeasurable value to me!

I have to have some background music or short attention span theatre kicks in hard. Especially with studying puter stuff. I also rotate in some brain candy reading to clear the brain after about 4 hrs of studying. Conan is still the best for that. (Chp1 -Conan kills somthing. Chp2- conan fucks something. Chp3- Conan kills a whole lot of shit and fucks something else. Chp4- Conan pisses of great antient evil, kills it, fucks its corpse and the kings daughter in the same night. Lather, rinse, repeat.)

I have to agree with this. Firefly fic kept me sane my last semester.
