3 days for 12 hrs.

2 days for 4 hrs.
My study hours vary because some days I have 1 class and others I have 4. I'm getting 7-9 hrs. sleep per night and I don't feel groggy until the end of each day. I'm not killing myself but I do stay productive. I've spoken with classmates who're taking the weekends off and/or studying for about 4 hrs./day and say they "get it." I don't buy it. Speaking with them I see gaps in their understanding of the material...gaps that have the potential to grow in to huge deficiencies:
They comprehend a case, but they don't understand it in way that allows them relate it to the overall framework of the course.
They know the rule, but misunderstand the reasoning it took to get there.
They don't know which supplements, restatements, hornbooks, etc., are best suited for the specific course.
They don't see the direction of the course.
Learning BLL is key, but it will be hard retain it all and to apply it with dexterity if you don't see how everything ties together.
you are studying 12 hours on top of going to class some days?
