- 0Feb 3 by patsfan1I remember one of my clinical instructors telling me that a brain can't handle more than five hours of studying in one day. So I would try to stick to that with short breaks every hour or so. This worked for me on days I didn't have school or work. Also, have you tried reading and taking notes so the material is in your own words? That seemed to help me as well.
- 0Feb 4 by HeathermaizeyI think that is a lot to study 1 subject in one day. I try to make sure I understand the concepts before leaving class. I ask plenty of questions during class and then review it a couple of times a week. I study extra the couple of days before a test. I must be doing something right, I got an A on my test yesterday!!
- 0Feb 6 by Brownbear1We all study best in one hour blocks. After one hour take a break go for a walk go out and get a coffee. You need to get away from your study environment and give your mind a rest. If you do something physical it is even better then you are exercising your mind as well as your body. It is working great for me. Good luck in your studies!
- 0Feb 6 by stuart2994i depends if it works for u then keep doing it if not try something else. but like what ppl r saying here most of us study in 1 hr blocks. i myself like to study and read for 30 mins and take 45 mins-1hr breaks lol nursing itself is supposed to be easy and straightforward in my opinion but for some reason instructors always want to complicate things and stress u out.
