Hey I've been browsing these forums for some insight into the field I'll be currently majoring in. But I feel I may as a well ask myself and get some firsthand advice. Being a physics major, it's only natural that the course load will be quite heavy compared to others. I'm taking five courses this semester that include elementary linear algebra, calculus, chemistry, and physics. It's because of this that I'm little worried that I may burn myself out towards the end of the semester. I have always gotten high grades in highschool mostly because I pick up on the material pretty quickly and knew how to apply it to homework and tests right away, so I never really spent a lot of time outside of the classroom studying. Now that I'm in university I always hear that most of the learning is spent outside of class , I don't want to take the chance of flunking my classes because I had good grades in high school and just got lazy. So I guess my question is: what's a reasonable amount of time to spend on each subject every night without burning myself out? I have always enjoyed learning physics and definitely would consider it my favorite science, but I still enjoy other things in life that doesn't revolve around it...so I would like to find a balance between my education and the simpler things in my life that I enjoy.
