Most people need about six to eight hours of sleep a night. Do not sacrifice sleep in order to make time to study. Hunger can be a distraction, so don‘t skip meals. Eat three nutritious meals a day, and keep healthy snacks on hand during a long study session. The key word is healthy. Sugary snacks might make you feel energized in the short term, but that sugar rush is followed by a crash that will leave you feeling depleted. Caffeine can have a similar effect. A little caffeine a morning cup of coffee, for example can give you a boost, but too much caffeine will make you feel jittery and tense. Tension can affect your ability to concentrate. Being over-caffeinated is not the only potential source of tension. Pre-exam anxiety can also get in the way of effective studying. REMEMBER —DON‘T MEMORIZE You need to use study methods that go beyond rote memorization to genuine comprehension in order to be fully prepared for your test. Using study methods that suit your learning style will help you to really learn the material you need to know for the test. One of the most important learning strategies is to be an active reader. Interact with what you are reading by asking questions, making notes, and marking passages instead of simply reading the words on the page. Choose methods of interacting with the text that match your dominant learning style.

CSS Beginners‘ Gui de (Aamir Mahar) 60 STAYING MOTIVATED How to motivate oneself during this long arduous preparation? Most people had asked me to write something on motivation. I do agree with a lot of people that motivation is that fire in the belly that you and only you can ignite. Having said that we are often bogged down by insecurities. Your friends in corporate sector maybe earning million in bonus, or have a million dollar career all set while you languish at home or in the small city. Doubt does creep in that what if I don‘t make it ? What will society, my friends, family, etc. think of me? Will I be able to handle the pressure? This that and so many other negative thoughts keep haunting you. Always have a positive set of friends around you, ones who challenge you to work harder, test your knowledge and when you get tired in the long marathon also fetch water to keep you going. Family obviously is another pillar of support. By now, you might have dreamt hundreds of times seeing yourself getting first rank in civil services exam; imagining yourself giving speeches on TV, to magazines and newspapers, to yourself. You might have also visualized yourself being treated as celebrity in your home, village, city and in state. Have you noticed one thing? You usually dream about this Big Day in your life mostly after spending few hours productively preparing for this exam. Study well for 2-3 hours, you will soon start imagining yourself to be the future topper. Once you realize you are actually wasting time, you will be shaken and awoken to reality: you will again start reading/writing something; the dream evaporates!
