Thanks for this. I am notoriously bad at studying, expecting somehow to just absorb material and then freaking out and cramming at the last minute when that doesn't happen. And yet, I preach to my kiddos the importance of being prepared. What a hypocrite I am! I agree with you that it makes your more focused, it takes a certain amount of discipline to carve out the time to study well.

Hey Dee,

I'm happy it helped. It took me a long time to develop a system that works. I think a lot of it comes from my limited amount of time, or at least a feeling that I have a limited amount of time, so I try to "over study," something I never did when I was young.

It takes a while to get into the grove and it is hard to maintain. There are times when I hate my system because it takes so much longer to read texts, but in the end...it always serves me well as I can study from my notes much better than from a text.

Trust me...I'm a hypocrite too...you don't want to know the state of my homeschooling...I'm a lazy teacher now!
