My home. In an aircon room where I can fully concentrate on what I am doing rather then going out to try to get half the job done.

yeh agreed. mugging at home is the best. high absorbency. but maybe without the aircon. expensive to mug with it on all day.

I just want to comment that those who go Changi Airport to study are wasting their time.

I wonder why, the only time I go to Changi Airport is for going oversea reasons. If not my friend would drive the bunch of us there & chill...

Elaboration please synapseman?

Synapseman - u must have some grudge against the airport...I quite enjoyed the 'cold' temperatures in terminal 2, and depending on where u choose to go, rather quiet too.

Ur remarks are uncalled for, as one's bad experience there doesn't mean he/she is entitled to condemn the place.

Uncalled for? I call it like it is! And I'll make that call again. I don't have a grudge against the airport because I only hold grudges against people.

Anyway, I'm not talking about the place. I am talking about the kids who go there to study. From what I observe, many of them could achieve higher productivity levels if they stayed at home, or went to the library. And what they are doing is really just loitering.

The airport is quite a nice place to study actually. Cool and quiet. But i find the trip feasible only if u are staying in Tampines, Pasir Ris and the east zone. I find it silly to find people who travel from jurong to the airport to study. It juz isn't cost effective enough to be doing tgat. U can find good study areas in the west as well.

Hey, hey, hey, cool down OK? This is not some place to get so worked up.

And from what I observed too, there are many who go to the library to loiter too, just that the librarian is there to tell those who made too much noise to keep their volume down. Anyway, I have frens who study best by having others to hang around, and to chit chat and such...some can't study in silence for long hours at a stretch. Depends on the individual...

the library works for me... if u dont' like the noise just find a quiet corner and hide there. there's gotta be a quiet place some where in the library.

it all really depends on the study habits of a person really. there are pple who cant study without the radio on n there are some who thrive studying in macdonalds but there are some who cant study with even the slightest of noise. so its really finding the method n location that works best for the u.

Well let's put it this way: If I were a parent and my kid wanted to go to the airport to study, I wouldn't allow it. The lighting at certain places is bad, and I personally think that to study properly, you need to be seated at a table, and not sitting/lying on the floor. And it will depend on the company, too. Chances are, the friends would be more of a distraction than be of any help.

I was at the airport not too long ago, chatting with a friend, sitting at the viewing gallery for a good few hours. There were many teenagers studying, presumably for their "O" or "A" levels. I would judge their productivity levels to be no more than 30%.

As uni students, there will be ample facilities around campus to study, I believe. The library for a start. If not, try the tute rooms, computer labs, or study areas. Sometimes LTs can be un-used, too.

I did however, study at Serene Centre McDonald's during my sec sch/JC days, because it was quiet and not so busy that I'll get in the way of anybody else. I'd only study alone. But I also don't condone people hogging seats at places where it'd deprive other customers of a place to have their meal. That's just plain inconsiderate.

yeah, agree that the airport is not a good place to study.
smart auth are making the lights dimmer so you can't study there.
and I see the airport food court covered with 'no studying' signs but I still see students studying there.

My friends went there to do a survery on why sec sch kids like to come to the airport to study.
hahah.. at the end, their bags got stolen.

you can't study in some community libraries nowadays.
I know Marine Parade lib doesn't allow it.

best plc to study? school!

toa payoh library too. they put up these signs asking you to go to community centres instead (is there air-con there?).

studying at home is good, if without the distractions. i find that i'm get easily distracted by either the tv or the computer. prefer to go out where i only have my books with me.

haha.. you know why?
coz you got to join the lib club as a member and pay them money to use their studying room facilities.
they only know how to make money.

IRAS even sent me a tax return form. scared the hell out of me!

Well, I usually mug in school (NUS) at Engineering side there, usually with a LAN powerpoint nearby so I can stream radio at the same time, best is when I can get a classroom that is unoccupied
AND has LAN points as well....

Home is still the best for me. The library and other air-conditioned places are too quiet. =) At home can chew on snacks as loud as you want, and can scream as loud as you want if you get frustrated. =) The home comp a source of temptation? Well if you plug in your laptop at the library same thing.

And I try not to study with friends, we will most probably end talking about the cute gal at the opposite table in the end, no work done. =)

I have a habit of doing my work on the bed (lying down of course). The same goes for studying. I think that is the most comfy place for studying. At least i can avoid straining my back due to hours of sitting (hurting buttocks too).

No can do. Lying in bed is definitely not workable for me. I am sure to fall asleep. Confirm sleep for me.
