    I've learned in Psychology (and other sources), that one can study for 24 hours, but actually retain little information. It's so much more beneficial to study for 30-60 minutes, take a 10 min break, then refresh what you just studied. This way you actually learn the information!

    For me... well I'm supposed to be doing Statistics homework and I'm on RJ icon_lol.gif

    Probably about eight hours, with some short breaks. I used to sit down and read a book cover-to-cover on a saturday, if it was one I had been looking forward to. But I hardly ever have the time any more, unless stuck on an airplane or something.

    It depends on the book. If I really get into a story, I can spend the better part of a Saturday reading. With others I start to get sleepy or bored after a half hour.

    My usual is to read for an hour before bed each night.

    I hate studying anything for long but I can read a good book for hours, probably all day long if I have nothing else to do. I'm a big loner and I work from home so I have lots of time for stuff like this lol.

    I can't stay still to study for long. But if I need to, I can go for at least an hour before taking a break.

    In my last semester of college I thought it would be a grand idea to take 5 graduate level courses. Lets just say I spent 3 months spending my entire time either sleeping, at school, or doing school work. And when I say entire time I mean it. No friends, no tv, etc. It was HELL!

    I can study for as long as I can stay wide awake, so from 10am-6pm, after or before that, I don't study well, but I also take short little breaks when studying, like getting on RJ or listening to music for 10-15 minutes.

    That's exactly how I study. Going solid burns you out. Gotta step back every now and again.

    It depends on the topic and the interest in the subject. Sometimes the whole day or other times, barely 20 mins.

    I read a lot back in college, text books, readers, passages....etc. Now I'm just flipping through pages of Esquire, Playgirl and Out magazines! Time changes people. But if I have to say, it depends on the topic/material. I once read the novel Da Vinci Code like 8 hrs straight, finished it. Now more like 1 hr a day or even less if the subject is not interesting.

    It depends on what I read.
    If it's a novel, I can read long hours.
    If it is something that need to be memorized or required processing or reasoning, I'll read only 2-3 hrs a day.

    I can't study worth anything maybe an hour or two hours top its something I've always struggled with and partially my own fault I guess for just not really enjoying the things I learned.

    Though when it comes to a good book throw me a bag of pop corn and a drink and I will vanish for two days or more! Staying up till the crack of dawn and not even getting sleep!

    As a would-be professional student, I could do it all day but with some needed breaks for other body/soul/mind nourishing actvities.

    I study hard in one hour blocks. That may be one hour a day or one hour a week and the rest of the time thinking about it. In my field no one cares how well you can memorize a bunch of facts but how you use the information clinically.

    To your question
    How many hours can you study/read a day ??


    My normal average ~ 4 hours. studying.gif

    If i'm into something deeply that interest me it would take a whole 6 -7 hours.26.gif

    After that I "must!" need my time of leisure...could be either dancing music.gifsinging karaoke sing.gif, gaming play_game.gif, watching TV tv.gifor I just SLEEP! 28.gif
