I can barely hear myself think!

With all the comings and goings of housemates, my home is a veritable mental aslyum at the moment and I am finding it impossible to study. I absolutely must complete a literature review for my Masters thesis this evening or I am dead. Does anyone know somewhere here in Barcelona that is quiet, cosey, conducive to study AND open until very late? Bonus points if they serve coffee and have wifi. [more inside]

Studying for Real Estate Broker's exam

I am studying for the Real Estate Broker's exam for California. I am awful at studying in general, and have little to no real estate experience. I am not currently a Real Estate Agent. I've taken the test once, and didn't score so hot the first time and I'd like to take it only one more time. Anybody take it and pass and have some words of advice, such as study methods, programs, or books?
