I don't even think I could function after two weeks if I had only been to bed 4-5 times. Heck I couldn't function if I had only been to bed 4 times in ONE week.

Only once in my life did I pull an all nighter and that was awful. Walked the 1 1/2 miles to class to turn in my project in a dream-like-state. I felt like I was losing my mind, couldn't tell if I was really walking to class or if it was a dream, Will NEVER attempt that again.

PFFFFFT. It was de rigueur where I went to school!

"Sleep, passing, friends: choose 2." Sleep was usually the one to go =p, though I definitely knew people from the other two camps... and we weren't exactly slackers... haha.

I had to pull back to back all-nighters on more than one occasion at the end of semesters when papers were due. Let me tell you... NEVER DRINK 3 MONSTERS IN A ROW TO STAY AWAKE. After one back-to-back all nighter, I literally couldn't sleep despite being awake for 60 hours--I just laid on the couch shaking due to the caffeine when all I wanted was a 2 hour nap before class.

Llanowan,

That reminds me of people going to Frist and buying several 4-packs of red-bull (especially the sugar-free ones). Only pulled two all-nighters, one to pack at the end of the year and the other to help a friend with their thesis (even though I was already out at this point). Ahhh, memories. I can't wait for grad school.

I imagine I would jump off the building if I have attempted what OP have done on exam C... Then again, if I really attempt this studying schedule in real life. I probably won't have the energy to jump off = =!

when i was taking MFE I said to people, i never studied more than 2 hours a day for 5 consecutive days before
when i was taking C I said to people, i never studied more than 4 hours a day for 5 consecutive days before
I thought I was hardworking then I see your post.

anyways, what I'm trying to say is that you worked really hard and must have sacrificed a lot, and you must be really smart. I really admire all of that~~~

good job!!I'll use your example to push myself to study next time.

I used this post as a model when I was studying for C. I worked through all the problems in the ASM manual within a month and then spent two weeks reviewing before the exam. I passed C last Tuesday.
