FF members studying??

Hi I was just wondering if there are other people studying at night and working during the day?
How do you cope?
Any study tips on essay writing?

As many know I have been accepted into Law .I started about 2 weeks ago and have hit the ground running!!! It is really enjoyable and I have done some 30 hours at night study a week..
Maybe someone can suggest some pointers?

Re: FF members studying??

Just about to (Hopefully) start a Bachelor of Information Technology through distance ed. Work during the day, study at home. Its going to be tough, so im interested in pointers as well.

Most people ive asked just said you really need to organise your day, to give time for all the things you need to do.

Re: FF members studying??

Master of IT. Just finished first year. Part time while working full time.
I work shift work so it is easy to do the work, heaps of time at night.
essay writing is easy (better than coding), just remember the thesaurus is your best friend hehe, BS helps a lot.
What I like to do is when an assignment is handed out, get started straight away on it, finish it asap so you have more time for other subjects and to staudy for the exam. Then at the same time more time to yourself to go out and relax.

Hey night_Lurker, did you do your B IT part time, or full time Uni?

Re: FF members studying??

Hambo...its alot of work. For yourself I hope they give you enough material to study. I have gone into overkill with my studies and know what the teacher is saying on the night.I get a massive headache but it helps to know the material before I go in. Now I have to seriously look at time management..when to study and which nights...but from where I am standing now this means every night.

You are a braver man than I!!! I deliberately got my M.IT out of the way straight after my BSc, because from all the people I knew who had worked full time and studied part time, not one of them was telling me how great that arrangement was!!

Happy I got mine done quick, but I take my hat off to anybody studying part time and working full time!

Mate I am 2 weeks into it...but there is much to be read and understood in law.The funny thing is that I really like it alot.It is interesting.

I dont know how external students will go with this field ,but I do know its got to be tough for them.

Just study the night before the exam... she'll be right

Goodluck with it fellas, I'm the other way around. Study/Course during the day, & casual unrelated work at night.
