Sticking to game plan vs Adapting

Postby stocksly33 » Fri Oct 15, 2010 12:00 am

do you second guess yourself when you alter your study habits?

I had a gameplan going into school, then changed it substantially once i got a feel for my profs. now i found myself making lots of minor tweaks (most recently... using past student outlines effectively). while my reasons for making changes are to create efficiencies and better my chances for success on the test, i often feel a nag of guilt for straying off my preset course.

don't feel guilty, it usually means you're doing the right thing if you know why you're making those changes. two weeks before one of my first law school finals last year, I dumped a 30-page outline that I had just finished and made a brand new outline after taking some practice exams. I killed that test because I was able to cater to exactly what my prof wanted based on her sample answers.
