I had an idea: use different scents for studying different subjects. That will keep everything associated better.

State-dependent learning is true for caffene, I think, too.

    That's more difficult than it sounds.

    "Okay, what scent do you associate most strongly with Bio 227?"

    "Hm... coffee. It's always first thing in the morning, so I always have a cup on my desk."

    "Okay, cool. How about Bio 210?"

    "Well, I generally have a coffee and a cigarette just before that class. All through the class I can still taste the coffee, so..."

    "Okay, okay, how about Chem 210?"

    "Oh, my late class. Yeah, by that time I'm exhausted. If I didn't bring a large coffee with me I'd fall asleep. So, coffee."

    et cetera.
