Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
How long do people think it takes for their brains to recover to full stamina/intelligence after a long practice session or practice test? ie how much rest do you need before you can perform at your best again hours? a day? more?
Two weeks before my exam I put my studying into full throttle, atleast 2-3 hrs during the week and then 16-20 hours on the weekends. It helped a lot to fine tune some tough concepts, but I will warn you that it may burn you out. I felt overwhelmed for the test and performed poorly. I think a consistent, medium pressure approach is the best, don't try to do too much all at once.
I think it can take a full day to recover from a 4 hour exam, whether it be practice or the real deal. I think a study plan that includes 1 to 2 hour sessions most of the time, with the occasional 4 hour burst, i.e. for practice tests, is perfect. Its like training for a marathon. You rarely will run the full 26.2 miles in training, but will try to do about 20 miles, and the excitement and adrenaline of race/test day will carry you through to peak performance.
