4.5 hours a week for a 3 credit hour class is unreasonable?
It is working and sounds a lot more than what it is. I have to break it up in small reviews or can't remember crap.
This initial post made it seem like each thing would take longer. My bad. And like I said, if it works, do it. Everybody has different ways of learning and performing well on tests.
As for me, I crammed a lot in undergrad. Once you get into the big boy leagues, you have to study daily, and develop new ways of staying actively engaged (like the ones you described). That will help you if you ever start thinking about grad school.
