If you plan accordingly, you only have to study for two hours a day and NOT on Sundays. Yes, just two hours a day! I bet you didn’t think it would be that easy, did you? Stay with me, these strategies I will introduce or reintroduce to you over the course of these blog posts will help ease the hectic scheduling of school and make studying in and out of the classroom flow together with your life seamlessly.
