One of my good friends whom I've known since high school is going to med school with me now, however he is kinda getting on my nerves with his gunnering!!! lol This dude cannot stop studying. I can't even convince him to take breaks every now and then. He just studies, studies, and studies. That's all he ever does. Literally nothing else. To put it in one phrase, he has no life. And the thing is, there's no need for him to study nonstop. I study about a quarter of what he does and we get similar grades on tests. I want to prove to him it's about the quality of your studying sessions, not about the quantity. Someone who studies for 3-4 hours with full focus will obviously perform better than someone who studies for 8-10 hours with distractions. How can I convince him? Because sometimes he gets really annoying and he comes down on me for not studying as much as he does lol EDIT: Read my response to "dilatate". Sorry I forgot to mention that part. You guys are all right. Someone who studies all the time is not necessarily a gunner, but he does ridicule others time to time, makes a big deal out of class grades, and compares himself to others demeaningly.
