hay friends People have a lot of misunderstanding obout studying.they think that the more they will keep reading the more they will learn.This is wrong. There is always an optimum point for every student. If any body tris to do twenty three hours work in one day he will be so exhausted he wont be able to do any thing. It is wrong to think that mind work like a body . When you got tired of reading and find yourself repeatedly reading a paragraph without understanding it. U must stop that is your opyimum point.U cannot give it rest by luing in a bed. the mind rest by variety of thougths. do somthing other. By doing so u will be able to make the mind rest.the mind is always turning . It get its relaxation only by variety. ,Therefore for me one must not study too long even in exam days. what do u think

I for one have a problem with studying. I take up the book to attempt to study and seem to get distracted with so many other things. I read one time and seem to remember what I need to pass a test, but to sit and really study, that is not my thing.

This is something you have to train yourself into. What is not generally known is that it can be done. The trick is to first know what's happening - you are allowing your focus to wander. You can correct this by making a decision that you will focus on whatever you are doing at the moment and put everything else aside until it's time for it. Try it; after a little while you'll be surprised at the results and you won't be dragged this way and that in many areas of life. Best wishes. DDG

Hi Kashif, A sensible approach (I believe it's backed up by research?) is to study for 50 mins in each hour you have set aside for study; then take a break for 10 mins, go outside, catch some rays, anything. I've started a series of topics How to graduate with Honours. Posted 1. GET AHEAD OF THE GAME today. You can find it in my discussion links. Good Luck, DDG

As per me it's not the matter how many hours per day your studying it's only matter upto what extent you understand the subject and how much it is.This can be done only by concentration. Studying when your not intersted is like eating food when your stomach is get full. So try study when you are intersted make a plan and do it.
