possible to study too much?
« on: July 26, 2009, 03:06:41 AM »
Is it possible to study too much? There obviously is, but what would the good range be, ~8 hours a day at most?

(e.g. it is probably not good to study 24 hours straight).

I think the big issue is whether it's possible to study ineffectively.  And the answer to that is definitely "yes"!  Often folks who are studying 8 hours per day for months are wasting a lot of time.  There is definitely a need for a lot of practice, but so many people do every single LSAT and don't do relevant review of the work that they do and don't work on mastering strategies.

8 hours seems like a lot, particularly if you're not breaking that up into chunks.  But, whatever is getting you to improve your score.

Good luck!  - Noah
