    studying in college

    Just wondering, how many hours (for college students only) did you study per week?

    I'm guessing it's different for each major but I'm curious if 35-40 hours a week is the normal or if it's made up.

    Re: studying in college

    I'd say I averaged 10-15 hours per week. 2-3 hours per weekday.

    This is how much I study...I was recommended by a faculty member to study around 28-35....


    I also have all B's so it's not like i'm failing everything either.

    Re: studying in college

    I wouldn't say that a typical week is 35-40 hours but there are definately times when you will not have a life. It also does depend on your major, I had a roommate who was going into history and he never had more than a couple of pages to read and maybe write a short paper while I went into engineering and had multiple times where I had to pull all-nighters in order to get done on time (I'm sure that's partly my own fault as well). Depending on your major I would say that 35-40 hours is reasonable but not every week, especially not your first year when you're taking intro classes.

    Re: studying in college

    Well if you really want to get decent grades and pass you're classes with mostly A's then the 35-40 hours a week isn't a lie. I never studied close to that amount while in college and still received a B- GPA. I probably studied around 10 hours a week. I was a mechanical engineer also.

    When I was there the foreign students studied about 110-120 per week, so it might have averaged 30.

    I'd put myself in the same boat, although my time was spent much working on homework rather than studying/reviewing course material.

    Re: studying in college

    Chem E is probably 30 hours a week, plus 17 class hours. Can fluctuate a lot depending on the week and classes

    Re: studying in college

    I'm pretty sure they said you're supposed to study 3 hours for every hour of class so you could figure it out based on your schedule.

    I got told this too...I'm curious if it's BS or if it's true. 35-40 seems an insane amount to me.

    Your exam might just be next to me...................

    I'm probably around 50-60. I'd be surprised to be under.
