What worked for me....
I was working full time days, then going to school part time at night. Kids, husband, grandchild (all of us living together). My husband's grad school, daughter's college, son's high school, my nursing school
, and an 8 month old grandchild that we all coordinated schedules so we could watch her too - it was a zoo!!!
I studied every day!! I had to. No choice. It wasn't like I could just study whenever I wanted, so I had to be very, very dedicated and organized.
I'd read the chapter before lecture, follow along in the book as the lecture progressed, then re-read once more in prep for exam. So by the time the exam rolled along, I'd have read the chapter 3 times!!!
Every morning before work, I'd get ready, then spend time-usually 1/2 to 1 hour. Usually the house was quiet, and I found that the little bites of studying added up.
I'd study at night too, until I dropped from being tired, and I missed all my favorite TV programs for 2 years - could not take the time to follow them...
Just picked up my diploma, and (pats self on back) received my degree magna cum laude - my only B was in pharmacology.
Good luck!!! Hope this helps!!!
