    Hi There,
    Just wondering what is the most appropriate time to start studying for the august exam, to peak at the right time and avoid burn out.. especially for someone who hasnt really had a very close look at the sciences in years.

    Looking forward to the replies.

    Bye

    I think it varies depending on the person, but I seemed to have burnt out after 3 and a half months. After which I barely seemed to be able to motivate myself to study.

    Yes, I burned out after ~3 months, but that is mainly because I am also taking 16 credits worth of hard upper level bio classes. If it were during the summer and I only had a job, I could have made it longer.
