    Hmmm, not sure how to vote. Studied half-assedly for 3 months, realized I wasn't ready for the April test. Stopped studying for 2 months, then buckled down and studied pretty much full time for 2 months (pretty much to the day) for the August test. So do I vote 1-2, 2-3, 3-4, or 4-5 months? :confused:

    I loved my previous boss' response to my requesting time off to study for it.

    He's like, "Well didn't you learn that all in college? You need to come to lab. You already learned it once...ALL MY PREVIOUS STUDENTS have gone into it cold turkey and scored above 36 on it!"

    grrr...he pissed me off :)

    I studied have on have off for about 1 to 1.5 months, but then I buckled down for the last month. Although I took it in August so I had a lot more time that April would've given me.

    Too bad there isn't a way to generate a correlation between study time and performance.... That would be interesting to see.

    scooby

    of course you're right here that asking the two questions wouldn't do anything because you couldn't tell which study time votes go with which score votes. I'm just lamenting the impossible/inconvenient....
