DEFINITELY music for me. can't concentrate at all without it...very bad habit coz in school we're not allowed to listen to music while revising so i just sit there and pretend lol. It has to be music i know the lyrics to so that i don't pay attention to it and it sort of fades into the background....and time? depends how i feel....but like mentioned before, everyone is different :D

urm I have to revise for a long period of time with only short breaks otherwise I'll get into the swing of revising, then in my break I'll forget it all! So I revise for 3 hours, then take a 1 hour break and apparently its not good to revise with music as even though it may seem not so distracting, it is to your brain as part of your brain has to focus on the music, so theres less overall concentration put into revision with music playing then without...so its got to be silent for me! :)

I revise differently depending on how much i feel i need to learn. Usually for half an hour then i switch to another subject then switch to another and so on. I sometimes have music on - depending on again how much i feel i need to learn! Everyone will revise for different amounts of time depending on what best suites them and their subjects! :-)

2 hours a subject per day  is really effective

30 mins for a topic i do not know much about without music with and 10 minute break

25 mins for a topic i know a little bit or i am sort of confident on with a 10 min break

One of my teachers said to listen to an album per topic if we listent o music because apparently it helps you seperate it and remember them seperately. :D

an hour of each subject per day, which works out like 9 hours a day, with half an hour breaks. music also helps me concentrate.

For me it depends onthe subject, for subjects that require more concentration like maths and science I don't use music, but I always listen to music when revising for Spanish (although sometimes I just end up singing lol)

I usually revise each subject for 30 mins to 1 hour with a break half way though each one.
