Concentration   The Problem   In many colleges over 8% of the students report problems concentrating on their studies. Most  of these students blame outside distractions for their problems.   Many research studies manipulating noise levels and distractions have found that such  disturbances may increase, decrease, or not even affect concentration. These researchers have  therefore concluded that distracters don't cause concentration problems directly. It is the way  the distracters are interpreted by the students that disrupts their study.   Creating a Study Environment 1) Find a place to study and keep it for study only. 2) Tool-up the environment with all study needs. 3) Control noise level and the visual environment to acceptable levels. 4) Avoid relaxing while working; create a work atmosphere.
