How many hours per week do you (or did you) study for electrical eng. degree

    So to the students or former students who are in electrical engineering majors, how many hours per week outside of class do you study? Or did you?

    The rule is two hours of study time per hour of instruction.
    If you're in class for 20 hours a week, expect to study/do work at home for another 40 hours a week.

    The actual numbers depend on the person and the class. For the easy ones, I could get away with almost no studying 'til the exam and then pull an allnighter. That scheme didn't work quite so well for the hard ones, though I still passed. Well done senior projects are generally a massive time sink.
