There are lots of struggles that come with studying: the need for coffee, a quiet place to work, the perfect music playlist, good lighting, snacks, headphones, computers — the list goes on and on. But even if conditions are just right, it's still so hard not to procrastinate. 

Every so often, however, we find those ways that make studying efficient, and when that happens, we try to replicate our tactics. Recently, one Reddit user asked the students of the online community what their best, most efficient study method is.
