Hi, like many who have recently posted in this forum, I will be entering my first semester of college this fall. I will be majoring in electrical engineering. Here is a list of the classes I'll be taking this coming semester: Honors American Public Policy (3 hours + 1.5 hour discussion) Honors Calculus II (3 hours) Modern Digital System Design (3 hours) Introdution to Electrical and Computer Engineering (3 hours) Yes, I'm only taking four classes this first semester. I did this so that I can ease into the curriculum without becoming too discouraged. My concern is the amount of hours I'll need to study (No, I'm not afraid of studying and have done my share so far). Here is a schedule I've come up with to help me measure how much time I'll be spending in class, studying, and how much free time I'll have (I know that I probably won't stick to it 100%, but it will at least help me gauge how close to on-track I am ): http://mlowery.net/2006_Fall_Schedule.pdf After looking at my schedule, I calculated that on week-days I'll have about 30 hours to study. But I think that I'll only be about 70% efficient - so that comes out to be more like 20-21 hours of solid study. For those of you who are currently in college or have since graduated, on average about how many hours did you study per week? Have I allotted myself enough time? (Notice I have left the week-ends completely free). Is there anything in this schedule that you think should be altered?
