STUDENTS TURN TO 'TAD' FOR HELP WITH STUDY TIME

 TORRANCE, Calif., July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- For most students, time is scarce. From juggling classes to cramming for exams, there are never enough hours in the day.
 To make the most of precious study time, experts recommend that students work in an environment which is free from distractions.
 For many students, that means turning off disruptions by turning on their TAD -- or telephone answering device.
 "Answering machines can help students concentrate on studying," says Jim Oblak, vice president of marketing at PhoneMate, a leading manufacturer of telephone answering machines and cordless telephones.
 "By turning off the phone's ringer, they can avoid being distracted, knowing their calls are being recorded. Or, they can screen calls by listening to who is on the line and then picking up only those that are important."
 Answering machines with built-in cordless telephones, like PhoneMate's Model 2750, can aid study time even more because they give students the freedom to do two things at once, such as discuss homework questions on the phone with their study buddy while retrieving their dictionary from across the hall.
 For students who yearn for privacy, the 2750 allows users to listen to messages through the handset. The unit also includes a nine-station autodial feature that allows students to store and then dial frequently called numbers -- such as their parents or study partner -- with the touch of a button.
 "Students will also enjoy the remote access feature, which allows you to retrieve messages while away from home, and the voice time/day stamp, which announces exactly what time and day each call came in," says Oblak. "And for those students who forget to return the handset to the base unit, the 2750's batteries last up to three weeks without recharging, and recharge four times faster than most cordless phones."
 Following are additional time-management tips for students set to study:
 -- Try to study during hours when you are most alert.
 -- Assign a specific subject or assignment to each hour of study.
 -- Organize the task and set priorities on what should be done first and gather the information to help gain a grasp of the subject.
 -- Make sure the daily schedule includes a healthy balance of school, work and play.
 PhoneMate's telephone answering machine and cordless telephones are available in consumer electronics and department stores nationwide.
