Fish, fish oils, and avoid anything that spikes your insulin/makes you feel groggy beforehand.

Make sure your liver glycogen is relatively full since the brain primarily utilizes glucose for fuel.

This means good complex carb sources throughout tonight and for breakfast. The liver holds approx 100g of glycogen so you can do the math to determine how many grams carbs you need to make sure it is well stocked

Adderall would work (As said above). It does wonders for your concentration and makes you a helluva lot smarter, atleast for me it does.

I've never actually had it.

To the OP, you probably wouldn't be able to get it by tomorrow so don't worry about it.

stimulants that I mentioned

but ya, if you can get your hands on some adderol in the future (or get a prescription, which is apparently very easy to get) it could be of some benefit.

watch out for addiction though (as with anything)

Isn't Adderall for ADD? Why would you recommend an ADD drug for someone who doesn't have ADD?

Plenty of people take prescription stuff that they don't need.

I am willing to bet that the majorty of test users do not have a condition of low test.

I am not necessarily recommending adderol. I am, however, throwing out the fact that I know it would help based on the testimonial of people I know first hand (who don't have ADD but can easily get a presc. for it)

Because it enhances concentration in people who don't have it? Remember where we are... chemicals for human enhancment aren't exactly a gasped at in horror topic.

I've taken adderall before and I don't have A.D.D. Still made me concentrate A LOT better and made me smarter.

Edit - Oh and getting a prescription is very easy to obtain, most of my friend's are prescriped to it and do not have A.D.D. It puts my friends in better moods and they even said it helps them concentrate.

alcohol + adderol = wonders for one's nightlife game

(obviously probably not the best idea)
