    M-F 8-10 hours a day (the day of class I didn't study, just reviewed notes taken in class) and sat and Sunday 6-8 hours. I got a 97% same with patho 96%. Made nursing courses a breeze because I had a strong base. Same with BioChem and got a 95%.

    2hrs a day max on non class days. Just reread notes on class day. Got an A. A&P I is essentially rote memorization. A&P II requires truly understanding the systems.

    Not 10 hrs a day! The best thing to do is schedule daily studying. I aimed for 2 hours a day spread out during the week. Any longer than that and I stopped retaining the info. I did put longer hours in before exams - probably closer to 4.

    10 hours a day? Really? So your life literally revolved around that one class? Hmm...

    And to answer the original question, NO you do not have to study 10 hours a day. That is absurd. An hour or two a day, maybe 10 hours a week, should be a good balance.

    Go through the book before attending class. Review your notes within few hours after the class. Other than this 5-8 hours/week is enough and make sure that you are covering up the syllabus on weekly basis. All the best.

    Yeah, 8-10 hours a day seems excessive. I personally wouldn't get anything more out of studying 10 hours than I would 2 hours a day. But that's just me.

    I will suggest not only setting aside time to study but making sure you preview the material before class. Read the chapter you'll be dealing with the next day in class the night before, notice the new terms and get comfortable with the material. This way yu can focus on the details of the lecture and lab vs. getting caught up on trying to learn the big stuff for the first time. After class take 30 minutes to rewrite your notes if your a visual/tactile learner or relisten to the lecture vis tape recorder if you're an auditory learner. By pre viewing and reviewing you're sneaking in extra study time. This way when you have your 2 hour more thorough study session you can use it to focus on memorizing and reinforcing instead of learning it for the first time.

    Hope this helps. I'm taking A&P, Micro, Finite Math, Dev psych and writing for professionals this semester because I know how I study best and have found a way to manage my time, find yours and you can do anything!
