Is that the correct saying? How many hours do you study for every hour you're in class?

I think its the other way around. I have about 6 hours of school each day not counting lunch and passing periods in high school. That would mean 18 hours of studying, lol

what they told me was for every unit on the quarter system is how many hours of work you need to put into the class. 20 hours a week = 20 units.. wait that doesn't sound right.. I studied like an hour a day.

That's what I've always heard but I've never held to it. I get by with a 1 to 1 or 1 to .5 rule just fine most of the time.

Can't you take classes and or tests in which they'll just give you credits since you already know majority of the info?

You're supposed to study one hour less for every hour that you attend class.

And reading the book/handed out info from the class.

I got all "A's".
I got an "A" Not curved in the final,and was glad,that i took Notes in class,and;

You should try going back and attempting to get an A in English.

He is an engineer he doesn't need perfect English. And go easy. This isn't an English grammer test. It is a forum.

Well I just do the hwk set. But I think I will read the notes though that I do make the same day.

high school is a breeze (even AP courses) compared to college. no wonder the SAT/ACT board say 42% of those entering college are not prepared.

LOL. I'd be lucky if each hour of class got 1 minute of outside-class. I do homework in class and I study...well, I don't really.

Bold statement coming from someone who posts plenty of threads about his math skills being at a 7th grade level.

no you study however much you need to. too many variables to make general figures like that meaningful.

My math skills may be low but my English is up to par.
