    Does anybody have any input on how to increase stamina? Is it really 8 hrs in class, 6hrs study. How long should one be able to study out side of the classroom without a break , 3-4 hrs?

      i managed by cutting out useless lectures, and i got in the habit of reading everyday...i tried to always have a book open near me, so even when i watched tv i could read a bit when i got bored. it worked surprisingly well, and it didn't feel like i was spending that much time working.

      also, i gave myself from friday after school to sunday morning free almost every week.

      in my experience, if you work a bit every day, it is easy. class for a few hours, study a few hours, nothing to terrible. it is when you get behind that you have to do the ridiculous 20 study sessions. so, moral of the story is: don't get behind

      good luck
