    On average, how much do you study per day? I try to commit myself to at least 2 hrs per day during weekdays and a bit more during weekends or if ive got the day off work. Some days I will do less if its been a long day or I need a break. I was just wondering what everyone else does just out of interest :biggrin

    I try and do a few hours every night, and as much as i can fit in on the weekends. Too much though, and i find i can't take any of it in, so i go "pwn sum n00bz @ cs" instead.

    simongrahamuk Hmmmmmmm?

    This question has been asked a few times before, so have a bit of a search to see what people said.

    For me though, its not enough! I don't study much anymore, I simply try to learn.

    Its not enough for me either, working the usual 9-5 job, by the time I get home and have dinner, I can rarely work up the motivation to hit the books.

    If your getting in 2 hours a day, in my book your doing well!

    I only work part time...trying to find a full time IT job. So I have lots of time to study. I'll usually study around 5 hours a day, that includes messing around with my lab. Any longer than that and I start to get bored.

    I'm sat in front of the PC for hours at a time, but I'm not really studying. I maybe study for about half an hour, then get bored and surf the web for an hour. Then I study again for another twenty minutes before hitting the web AGAIN.

    Totally indisciplined is me.

    Plus it doesn't help that I live with some pretty rowdy housemates in here.

    I study for about an hour everyday, sometimes less.

    I find after looking at a computer screen all day at work and then coming home to look at another screen is very hard. :(

    I tend to spend 4 hours on the weekend reading chapters writing notes of the chapters I have read, then rewriting the notes to concise revision notes.

    On weekdays, I get up an hour early or read in bed before I have to get up to work. I find my mind is fresh and easier to absorb the material, I read the concise notes and write on postcards key phases. Then when I come home, I read these postcards (sort of like flash cards). Using exam Cram and Transcender exam prep software test myself. Then I play on some computer games or go out to with friends to relax and let the material absorb.

    I don't think you should push yourself to hard, but, take little steps towards the final target! :biggrin

    I do find when I lose my motivation to study, or stray form the certifcation route, CF is the best place to go to put me back on track!:biggrin

    At the moment, I dont really study much. I have my full time IT job 9-5 which I am really happpy about, and I learn something every day at work.

    Its funny though because I just bought a windows 2k3 book to start studying for 290 but cant get into to. I even installed vmware and 2k3 on them. I guess I better start soon before my win2k3 trial ends.

    Also I go to the gym 5/7 times a week and after that when I am exhausted I cant put my self to study.
