Studying Deeper vs Studying Longer

Here’s a reminder for myself as I’m in the midst of exam season.

Hours of studying matters, but how deeply I’m focused when I’m studying matters just as much if not more.

Focus is a multiplier.

Quality of Focus Hours Studied
Weak - 1 1
Meh - 2 5
Good - 5 10
Great - 10 20
Monk Mode - 20 50

To estimate my studying output, multiply the quality of focus by number of hours studied.

I can study all week long but if I’m not focused it’s a waste of time.

I’m at my best when I’m studying a moderate amount with high focus.
