are there negative consequences of this type of studying?

Postby swtlilsoni » Thu Sep 15, 2011 6:48 pm

I know many people spread out their material and learn it over the course of weeks. But I have been studying long hours every day and finishing a lot of material in short amounts of time.
For example, many people finish the powerscore LR bible in a few weeks. I finished it in two days.
Is this okay? I am worried that maybe if I am not moving slow, I will not retain the information.

If you are actually understanding the material in a way that you can apply it to your studies then I would not worry about the pace that you are moving at. It is just imperative that you deeply understand the material as it is key to your success.

That being said, it doesn't matter if it takes you a couple hours, a day, or even a week as long as you 'get it'.

I don't think its possible to absorb the subtle nuances, countless tricks of various question types, etc. all in 2 days. But hey, if you are scoring 175+ on practice tests, then no one will tell you that you are doing it wrong. But if you aren't scoring that high, I would take it down a notch and flesh out the material a little bit more slowly.
