It depends what suits the individual and also what time is convenient. When I was in school, I like learning during day time and study in the evening, some people prefer to learn in the evenings especially those who work and study.
It probably varies for every individual. I think each person has a peak time when they are more alert, and their brain takes in and retains information much easier.
in my research for creativity, I've come across researches that analyses how the brains of the great scientists and inventors work. They are excellent resources for problem solving, and I have discovered that the great minds surrender a lot more to their subconscious mind then I ever thought. A lot of them talked about releasing their problems to the void, go take a walk, have a sleep, do something they enjoy, and the next thing you know, the answer will strike them when they least expected it. As far as studying is concern, my opinion is no matter what time of day you study, take regular breaks to flex your brain muscle. Go outside for some fresh air, have a brisk walk, grab a snack. Oxygen is very important booster for brain power. Also, our brain learns by repetition, it wires neurons together by repetitive connection. I hope this helps. All the best for your study.
The best time is your best time, as others have said, when you are most alert.
One thing that has been proven is that plopping down and cramming for hours is probably the worst time.
Research on memory has shown that you will do better with relatively short bursts of 20-30 minutes or so, then taking a short breather to soak in what you have studied followed by changing your position / location such as another room a different chair, etc.
My simple short answer is "just after a good sleep" in the night or day time. I have observed that the brain works best when the body relaxes and the brain i less tensed.
I do not need to add an answer, VIOLETFLAME said it all. Plus each individual is different - no two persons are the same. What will work for one will not work for the other.
I've always been told that morning is the best for students. In the afternoon we all seem to grow weary or more sleepy. I could not have passed my tests in college if I had not carried 3\5 cards with vital info on them in test preparation. I would briefly scan the cards throughout the day and evening prior to the next test day. Of course I lost the cards during the tests. whonu
For me, I see merit in trying to learn something in the morning, when I am fresh, but I have also heard that retention is higher if something is studied soon before falling asleep. I think a lot can also depend on when one can find a quiet environment.
