Hi. Table of contents: I: Summary II: Introduction III: Subjects I study IV: My problem V: Schedule and time I can spend studying VI: Questions I have I: I'm taking three subjects that I failed due to missing out on studying the last two months of the semester. I will take these exams again in 6-7 weeks. Excluding new subjects and time spent on those, I will have 32 hours each week to revise the failed subjects, which I can adjust as I like (my preferred schedule is under V). These subjects are very exercise based (math, statistics, physics, electronic circuits). How can I best spend my time to understand these subjects? Please read the last paragraph, the one under VI, for more detailed questions. I want to prepare as good as I can and show to myself that this can be done. I'm tired of failing. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. II: I see a lot of similar threads, and I've dived into them without feeling particularly confident of how to combat my own problem of the sort. Due to a few tragic happenings in my close family 1-2 months before Christmas (serious illness and death) I had a lot of other things to take care off during this time - and I wasn't focused mentally on my final exams. This resulted in grades on my exams that I'm not comfortable with, and I will take them again in February (mid/late). III: These subjects are math (concerning topics such as La place transform/inverse, fourier series and transform etc.) and statistics (Mario F. Triola: Elementary Statistics chapters 1-14 (excluding chapter 12 and 13). This is one subject. Another subject is physics. I have amazing notes regarding this subject. Motion, newtons laws, work and energy, momentum and mass center, rotation, elasticity (slightly touching on the subject), fluid mechanics,thermal properties and thermodynamics. We also touch on chemistry, but that's only 30%. It's very basic chemistry. Lastly, I did ok in my electronics subject regarding transistor circuits, mosfet, op amps etc. I will, however, do this again as well if I have time. But the top two are my priority. In addition to this, I get three new subjects - all regarding electrical subjects. I'm not sure what the subjects translate to, but they're regarding PLC (subject is directly translated to Industrial controlling), electrical low voltage "systems" and automated systems. This is just to give you an idea of the difficulty, or lack there of, in my studies. IV: What I'd like to know is how I can study these subjects efficiently. The three new subjects I'm comfortable with, because we have a lot of lectures and we now have opportunities to consult our teacher. Last year my university had a problem with a lot of teachers quitting at once mid semester so we barely had lectures and no opportunities to consult teachers. So I think I'll be fine if I put in work in these subjects. My problem is the other subjects, to fit them into my schedule. I reckon I have 6 weeks to study before my exams because they will under no conditions be any sooner. And if I get an extra week or two - that's bonus. Keep in mind that these aren't subjects that I'm totally blank on. I understand the very basics, and I kept along until the last two months of the semester - then I threw it away. This means I don't remember a lot of the easy parts we went through the first weeks - but with some revision I will be fine. V: Starting next week, this is my schedule: Lectures 8 am - 4 pm excluding: Monday: 3 hours. Tuesday: 1 hour. Wednesday: 4 hours. Thursday: 5 hours. Friday: 3 hours. This is subject to change, but I'll have 16 hours a week I can spend studying other subjects. I also reckon I can study at least 2 hours monday - friday during week days without burning myself out, and 6 hours on saturday/sunday. My plan is to take either saturday or sunday completely off - but if that's a bad idea please let me know. I'm going to assume that I get all the work done in my new subjects at school. If I don't, I will chuck in some extra work during some days so it doesn't affect the time I spend on my "failed" subjects. To make things clear, this is the time I will have to spend on math/stat, physics/chemistry and electronics including spare hours at school, spare time at home and 1 weekend day: Monday: 5 hours Tuesday: 3 hours. Wednesday: 6 hours. Thursday: 7 hours. Friday: 5 hours Saturday/sunday: 6 hours combined. = 32 hours per week when school starts - for 5 weeks = 165 hours + the week before starting now. These hours are outlined as I prefer to spend my time. I can increase or decrease time spent at any day. I just feel that this is a good plan for not burning out - but it's just a feeling I have. As you can see, I'm just trying to get an overview of the situation here, trying to convince myself that this task is possible. VI: Things I would like to know: Is it good to assign each day to one subject? Such as Tuesday and Friday are physics/chemistry only, Monday and Thursday are math/stat only and Wednesday and weekend are electronics only? How often should I revise what I go through? Would I be better off splitting each day into 3 parts, and do a bit of all subjects, then do some revision at the end of the day - then spending my weekend day for revision only? Should I work for 45 minutes then take a walk for 15 minutes etc.
