Originally 10 subjects were planned to participate in the experiment but only 4 subjects consistently volunteered over the course of the experiment. For those that participated, the experimental method was followed. The test results were reviewed and for each participant, the score was averaged. Subject 1.1 did better listening to nothing, Subject 1.2 on did better listening to nothing, Subject 2.1 on did better listening to heavy metal and Subject 2.2 on did better listening to heavy metal. There was initially an expectation that the test subjects would do better while listening to classical music because of the studies that have reported listening to classical music helps to retain information (Mac, Takelessons). The hypothesis was incorrect based on these test subjects. The results may have been impacted by the limited number of participants and personal preferences. The group of younger test subjects, under 18, were able to remember more than the group over 18. No one specific sound was found to be consistently beneficial for any particular test or person. It was observed that for some tests (numbers, words, pictures, faces) different sounds appeared to show a positive result.
