I was wondering if I could perhaps get some advice from the JD community on study habits as the majority of you guys seem to be well educated. I graduated high school back in 96 and I swore to myself that I would only take a year off before attending college. Well, that never happend and one thing led to another so I just kept putting it off until now - Monday actually.
College seems like the perfect thing in my life right know as I'm getting laid off from my job after 5 years unfortunately due to consolidation so the state is going to pay for the first few semesters of school for me. I don't come from a wealthy family so this was good news for me.
I hate reading, always have, always will...Now I have 10 books (which weigh about 20lbs) to read for the Fall semester. I've not read a single book since high school, so obviously this will be a challenge for me. I won't be working for the first semester, so I won't have that extra burden to worry about.
Any tips on the best way to study? Self or group enviroment, online, in a library, on a train, in a plane??? I used to just blast my stereo at home which seemed to work perfectly for me back in the day, but I don't think that's such a good choice.
I'm a lurker on this site with the exception of the MN finds thread btw. I read a lot of your guys thoughts on comments, but I don't contribute much, obviously.
