**capacitor help please!!!!!**

I had a lab where we had a circuit with a capacitor and we measured the charging time of the capacitor. We then added a capacitor in series and measured the charging time and then added one in parallel and measured the charging time. The question asks how the addition of the new capacitor affects the charging time of the capacitor.... from our calculations (which may or may not be right...) I've determined that "when a capacitor is added in series the charging time is decreased and when it's added in parallel the charging time is increased"... can anyone give me any input on whether or not that statement is true. thanks
