Some of my students ask me if there is a particular type of music that they can listen to as they study for the GMAT. The question sounds silly, and yet it isn't. I did a little research on the subject and found some interest results. a bunch of Stanford psychologists in collaboration with the Stanford Graduate School of Business did a statistical study and found that there is indeed a correlation between certain types of musical compositions and intellectual performance. The scientists call it "The Mozart Effect." Below is a link to the actual publication. It is an interesting read.
