How to Determine Study Hours

When planning your study schedule, there are many factors to consider when deciding how many hours a week you have available to study. One of the key decisions you will need to make is when will be the most productive for you.

Many people are most productive early in the morning, when they are fresh and usually not disturbed. This time of day might be good for working parents. They can get up before the children start their day and get a solid hour or two of undisturbed study time. An added benefit to doing this is that you will have completed your CPA review first each day, rather than later as a last priority. Others might prefer to study at night. Late hours after friends, family, or roommates are no longer around to distract you for whatever reason. Again, you must be the one to determine when the best and most productive time to study is for you. This will help keep you on track and focused on your goals.
