How many hours, on average, do you study for an in class final exam, counting from when your outline is complete?

- do not include wasting time, like posting to stupid threads


me:  30-60

Well, here's my method. I go to class, I do the readings, I make my own outlines and I don't use any commercial study aids. I make my own note cards from the outlines, review the outlines, review the notecards, and take the test. I was also the first one done on all 3 of my finals. I think the real trick is making your own outlines, it's a great refresher on the material. Last semester I ended up top 3% and got accepted as a transfer to GULC for next fall.

30-60 AFTER the outline?  When do you complete your outlines, October?

to be honest the 60 is more of an aberration - the average is probably 40 per

historically started 3 weeks prior to exam

It's more likely that the rest of us are lazy and/or procrastinators.

Probably 20? Last semester a bit more, but less than 30 for sure, and it seemed to work out well.
ChicagoLaw, I'm transferring to GULC as well. I guess there's a ton of us, but just wanted to say hi.

I shoot for 6-10 hours per day once the outlines are done (which was the last day of class for me this semester), and that includes Saturdays & Sundays.
