QuoteOriginally posted by: ArjenHi Albert! Very good question. I see that many people struggle with this finding a good balance between work, personal time, and study time. What I usually advice people to do is chunk all the task that you want to do into little pieces. So don?t try to read an entire chapter or study an entire chapter. Just take two pages or one page. When you do that in, for example, five minutes you can read one page and take some notes you will see that this really adds up. Another thing is that you can try to find audio versions of the books or ask other people that you study with to create a small piece of audio material on a certain chapter. And you do the same and you exchange this information to each other. This way you can use the information or study while jogging, or while at a gym, or while driving to work, or in any other situation. Just listen to the information and you are learning. Of course the weekend is over also a very good time to study but try not to do everything at once. But really try to chunk the pieces of study time to smaller pieces and make that your study time for the day.you're a passionate guy Arjen! i agree with your comments.i have always taken notes as i read a book, just as you suggest. and, i used to make audio versions of (some of) my lessons as i was a student, and to repeat aloud driving from bourges to orleans (110km) on my way to the exams center (fortunately enough, i never had accidents!). and, i read only few pages and i stop. i take a breath, look at my notes. i then 'practice' (maybe a bit of if these are formula, a bit of coding if this is programming ..). finally, i start a new cycle, or stop, if my efficiency becomes limited.
