or is that actually 10 hours of real, actual studying?
if it's the latter then i am clearly missing something here.
I will study from 9 - 2 with a two hour break plus 15 minute breaks every hour. So thats 15 hours - round up to 4. Thats a good solid 11 hours studying. I do it last minute though. I had a week to prepare for my first final and I didnt start studying until 4 days before. I also didn't study the day of a final, so I just hit the books for two days getting in 20ish hours before my finals every three days after the first.
Lots of breaks, but study the entire day.
