An article in the NY Times that was forwarded to me: Forget Everything You Know About Good Study Habits. <- Link
Some of the things were obvious to me, or learned through experience already, but the article still provided some interesting insights into more effective study methods. I was intrigued about the idea of studying in as many diverse locations as possible, instead of sequestering yourself away into a library or personal cave, because it shocks/excites the brain in a subtle way (esp. if the setting is brand new) and helps you learn better.
