would suggest shock, pretty resaonable, during exams drank say abt 2 to 3 bottles whole night,
if u can afford it redbull, just one can is enough!

but be carefull, too much can cause real uncomfortable time in the bathroom!(from experience! )

Lamborghini,

Let me put it real simple. At the last F1 Team-BHP meet, I had three red bulls and couldnt sleep the entire night. Got out of bed at 6 a.m. and was fresh throughout the day.

Otherwise I sleep just a level or two below death...Really, its that deep.

so i guess
just 1 can of redbull is enough to keep me awake an extra 2-3 hrs.
also does it help concentration.
GTO seems like u thrive on red bull......
i too sleep like a log .
once a sleep it takes hours 2 try 2 wake me up ..........
they get iratated and den jus thro cold water

If I was in your place, I wouldn't be drinking any of these energy drinks. They'd ruin my body clock and I wouldn't want that to happen during my exams. Sleep early, get good sleep and wake up early. That's the best thing to do.

Rightly said,

there is no need of any of these especially when studying.
have either tea or coffee.wash ur face regularly.
study regularly ,u wont need to burn the midnight oil.
anyways all the best for ur exams.

just follow ur natural body clock, if u good at getting stuff in at night do that or if u r a early bird do that.. dont overfeed urself it wont help.. get ur relaxation go out relax for half n hour.. try understanding the stuff that u learn rather than mug up..

all the best anyways dude..

Lamborghini,

I strongly agree with Aditya on this issue. Don't go for any drinks to keep you awake. If you must then stick to coffee but believe me being awake all night wont take you anywhere. This I speak from my personal experience. You must sleep for atleast 2-3hours otherwise whatever you read isn't going to enter your head. Plus you'd be pretty much tired by the time you go for exam. Sleep properly & don't try to do everthing at the last minute. After all Rome wasn't built in a day !

I shouldn't be the one saying this because even I keep everything for the last minute . Btw what do you do?
