How much time did you spend reading in College on a weekly basis?

I am in a rather strenuous business program that is accelerated, and I have found some of the classes to be challenging due to the amount of information covered in 5 weeks. I have one 4 hour class per week and a ton of homework. I am taking what they call a "weighted" economics class, it is considered an economics class that is seen in the Masters program (traditional setting). It is balls to the wall, and I have found myself spending 10-15 hours a week reading and covering the lessons in our book. Mix that with working 55-60 hours a week, it is pretty rough.

I know some of you have some decorated degrees, what kind of book time did you see while you were in school? Mind you, I only take one class at a time.

This has to be a joke...

I have never seen anyone study this thoroughly in my academic career, and there are some neurotic ****s in medical school. Wow, if it works man, by all means... But wow.

30 minutes to an hour to read a chapter(approximately 2 a week). 15 minutes per class day to rewrite notes (45 min a week). Reading 3 times a day (15 minutes a day, hour 45 a week)

4.5 hours a week for a 3 credit hour class is unreasonable?

It is working and sounds a lot more than what it is. I have to break it up in small reviews or can't remember crap.

This initial post made it seem like each thing would take longer. My bad. And like I said, if it works, do it. Everybody has different ways of learning and performing well on tests.

As for me, I crammed a lot in undergrad. Once you get into the big boy leagues, you have to study daily, and develop new ways of staying actively engaged (like the ones you described). That will help you if you ever start thinking about grad school.

Yeah, **** that. Unless it's grad school I don't see the point.
