It depends on what type of distractions you mean. If the distractions are small children than it has been my experience to wait until they are in bed and asleep to study. If the distractions are roommates and then you might want to explain to them that you have to study and shut your bedroom door. What has always helped me is to study in the library at school even just for an hour at a time a few days before the exam and crash an hour the night before. Index cards/flash cards helped me and taking good notes helped me. As the author of this question, I will preserve this as an example of a joke taken too seriously. The original question was "If you are 20 years old and your 12 year-old possibly sociopathic brother chases after your 3 year-old dog with a chainsaw what is the best way to study for third-year biochemistry mid-term exams?" The question was also solely under the Nonsense Questions FAQ (as all joke questions should be) until not one, but two people changed the topic I chose to the one they thought would best answer it were it a serious question: Education. Not only that, one of those people decided to change my question entirely, completely destroying the message I intended to give. (I later learned that serious questions are commonly put in the Nonsense Questions FAQ as a last resort, and this person was a superviser who had seen many instances of that.) I did this as a satire of the immense glut of questions that exist asking "What if your (age between 11 and 19)-year old (daughter/son/girlfriend/boyfriend/brother/sister/friend) is (sociopathic/a pathological liar)?" There are just way too many of these and making the person's age different doesn't really change the answer. Also, the original questions focusing solely on sociopaths and pathological liars enjoy a huge popularity rating and are a much better resource, although it would probably be a better idea to take the question to professionals in the first place. I had done something similar with the question "Is 31254pi a good IQ for a 476 gatch-old male Daskor living in the Triangulum Galaxy?", though I suppose the made-up words made it easier for people to tell it was a joke. It's not a real question. Please don't take it seriously. Props go to Zilly for his original answer, "Use the chain saw to chop your brothers head off!" -Syckls (and if you don't believe me, look in the question history)
