i've been using Acetyl-l-Carnitine for a week or so now & the increased focus was the first thing i noticed.
i take it on an empty stomach with a cup of Green Tea Extract & the increase in focus is almost immediate.

Ephedrine and Caffeine always did the trick for me on those days I needed to hit the books hardcore.

Caffeine doesn't do much for me maybe the ephedrine...
ALCAR has a good rep....

Ant., maybe you should tell them what you already are taking.

ALCAR would be at the top of the list right alongside Rhodiola rosacea at a 3 to 4 time per day dosing.
You could mix alcar, green tea and rhodiola all together and take it several times per day...or subsitute chocamine for the green tea for a stronger stimulant effect.

I just finished studying, then testing for the first part of my A+ certification last week. I had my free sample of Spike (biotest). The stuff works pretty good. It really helped me concentrate. By the way, I passsed the hardware portion of A+, now I just need to study and pass the O.S. portion.

AMP, Caffeine, Tyrosine, Green Tea, GPC or Modafinil.

AMP...alot of people have been going off about the focus and drive they have while on it

Yeah, works for me (with green tea, coffee, plus/minus ephedrine, HEAT).Originally Posted by oswizzle
Calm, clear, laser like focus as well as energy (mental, physical), improved visual acuity, quickness, dexterity.

there is NO WAY i'd be able to sit still after a dose of ephedrine.
from my experience ALCAR affects mostly the head/mind & not so much the body.

Im already doing an EC stack. It does help me stay awake through the class but i still lose focus after a while. I have heard good things about alcar. Im gonna look into amp. Looks like good stuff too. Gonna be a rough 2 weeks. Thanks, Anthony

Look for a product called Focus Formula. I have used it before and liked it. You could also look into some of the nootropics such as piracetam.

Good luck on the OS part. The Core Hardware side is a piece of cake compared to the OS part.Originally Posted by SCORPIO

EC + Sulbutiamine
ALCAR + Caffeine + Priacetam

Alcar helps, but I think sulbutiamine is great for focus, especially if it's something tedious or boring. I also liked my biotest spike sample, definitely more/different than caff. and sulbutiamine, although you may want to steer clear - plenty of people had a bad experience with spike.

If you want to go the prescription route there's a great drug called Provigil. Someone mentioned it above but not in brand name. It's not a stimulant and actually deals with your "sleep/wake" cycle. Very good drug with virtually no side effects.

Try Ginko Biloba; it's been clinically proven to increase focus and mental clarity over an administration peroid of 3 months. This is achieved through increasing peripheral circulation in the brain.

Piracetam, ALCAR, Power Drive, NeuroStim, DMAE all worked for me.
