You will stop learning after 30 minutes -60 minutes
You’ll become overwhelmed and will find excuses to not study later
Your mind will start wandering off to other things
Do not spend hours and hours studying for weeks and do not even think of cramming for the electrical exam the night before. College students know the importance of breaking up their study time and you should too. Most students agree that studying for 30-60 minutes per session is more efficient that studying for hours. You can have 2 to 3 study sessions per day if you break them up in between. Realistically, after work and family, can you really do 2 to 3 study sessions per day? Probably not, that is why we urge you guys to start studying at least 6 months before the exam.
