      Definitely a cup of hot coffee…and I mean hot… 🙂

      For snacks, sour skittles, warheads, and brookside chocolate almonds…depends on the study session but I usually rotate between those few

      hmm such a fun topic :))

      coffee for sure, but some green tea occasionally too.

      I have all sorts of raw nuts for snacks – especially like cashew and almond. The problem is I eat loads of them and they are pretty calorific. Maybe I’ve to chew gum next.

      I know it’s bad for you, but Snickers works amazing for studying. Keeps you from getting hungry (I knew that even before they did the adverts…)

      rice cakes, boring but good grazing material.

      I have a wide range of snacks to choose, recently had oranges because of its sweet and sour taste, keeps you alive and refreshes your mind. If you are into healthy diet then you could add milk but does not shoot up your energy level as much as Oranges do. Water is good one, but I assume the question is more of a invisible hand.

      Gargh, I’m a serial nut (on many levels. I mean e.g. cashew, almond, peanut) offender. sigh :))

      @sr2014‌ I agree about the oranges! I usually have a mandarin or orange mid way through a study session to reboot! 😀

      Lots and lots of green tea and chewing gum.

      I’m transitioning from coffee to green tea right now and find it very effective and the taste is starting to grow on me haha

      Hot cup of Breakfast Tea, and cereal bars as a snack! Or coffee if I am feeling sleepy!

      morning: espresso, sliced apple and toasted English muffin followed by a cup of English breakfast tea. Afternoon: light lunch (sandwich). I don’t eat anything else while studying because I like to mimic test conditions (so gum only). I found for me personally that helped me have stamina in level 1.

      Had a bad experience because (like most of you) I methodically planned my lunch (went to whole foods, had a sandwich prepped and in a cooler with some almonds and a club soda)–then went to my car between sessions, bit into it and realized my wrap was SPOILED. Like fermented. So I had to get through the second session of Level 1 with only about 15 almonds in my belly. Let’s just say I had a hard time sticking to my test-taking strategy by the end of that day!

      @jim urgh. Lesson learnt. I always went for really dry ones like chicken and bacon sandwiches in the hope that it will withstand till lunchtime for exam day.
