    How many hours a week should you work on EE2 outside of class?

    Is it best to work on it one day a week or more consistently?

    Isn't one day a week the same as 'consistently' on a weekly basis, really it is up to you and your commitments and how much progress you AIM to make each week. This question is as long as a piece of string, and the better question to ask perhaps is 'how many hours a week do you work on EE2 outside of class'. Whenever a question has a 'should' or high modality word in it, implies that there is only one right answer which can't be further from the truth. Anyways, all the best with EE2 (I haven't studied it before so can't give you advice on how long I took).

    Work on it whenever you are bored or feeling particularly creative. Don't schedule it (unless you are really neat and tidy and like that stuff), because that might kill your joy and turn the course into a drag.

    i made a film so it some weeks i would be spending hours on the weekend filming, while others i had nothing to do because i had to wait for the weather. sometimes i would also have NO INSPIRATION or botheredness to do anything - it was excrutiating to sit at my laptop and have no idea what to edit for two weeks, but afterwards I would get an idea and work on it consistently for more than 2 hours a day in that week. Overall an hour a week if you were to average it out. it was very unbalanced though because thats the way inspiration came for me idk?

    I personally did most of the reading in the summer holidays, and then wrote most of it in the term 1 holidays, and just consistently edited up until it was due. I did a critical

    It should be a significant block of time - however don't force it to happen. There will be times where you have writer's block etc. so it would be inefficient. I personally worked on and off throughout the whole course - would go for days on end whenever I would have inspiration, then take a good week off any substantial work. I made sure to have a look over my work and do any minor edits at least once a week, though.
