You will hear from lots of people that the best way to study is in a quiet comfortable location free of distractions. While that works for many people, it doesn't work for everyone. I had a roommate that couldn't stand any sort of distraction when studying. I on the other hand cannot stand the quiet. My mind drifts off, I get sleepy. I like to listen to music or watch TV when I study. So forget the advice about studying. Do whatever it is that helps you learn and stay motivated. Just be sure to actually study.
