I agree that so much can be overkill. There is a point where extra studying won't correlate with extra points on exams. I cut my studying in half my second year (from 10 hours a day down to around 4-5). My average dropped by 2 points. I enjoyed school a lot more, had more free time, and enjoyed a life once more. So for me, the 2 point drop in my average was worth the extra 5 hours per day I had to enjoy myself.Originally posted by cmz
To put things in perspective... a friend of mine puts in up to 40 hrs every week. I personally think it's overkill -- we always end up with similar grades.
Nice...I like the way you operate, player.Originally posted by JP2005
thank you centrum...i dont have to put in that many hours bc i knw i can "just pass" if i really wanted to..i WANT TO put in that many hours because i know in my head im better than "just pass" and besides if you dont learn the material well enough now...when are you going to? the hours only get worse as you leave med school and go through residency...and it will be hard to make time to review 1st and 2nd yr stuff.trust me.......i have 2 sisters that went through all this crap.....
