Studying for a class, mid term or final exam just got easier with iStudyAlarm.
Staying focused while studying can often be a challenge and the iStudyAlarm is designed to help exam students of all ages.
Research shows that studying in 20 minute intervals and taking a 5 minute brain break is highly beneficial for learning and memory.
Far too many people study harder rather than smarter and end up burning out. Sitting and passing exams is suppose to get you ahead in life, not make you tense, stressed and a nervous wreck. Plus studying for too long can cause your brain to get tired and forget key information.
How the iStudyAlarm works… when you are ready to study, simply tap the start button. The timer will go off after 20 minutes and prompt you to spend 2 minutes revising what you have just learned. Next the alarm will time your 5 minute brain break.
