Good job, Deneb. Be careful, though, of setting yourself up to slide by saying you'll study 6.5 hours -- that's an awfully long time to study, in one go. Maybe look at alternative ways to set it up? Or say, "I'll read this section on Monday, do this project on Wednesday..." Or something like that?

I've found I do a lot better if I have a timer going. Doesn't that sound silly? I can tell time -- even on the analog clock! Yet, a timer really helps.

The other thing I thought of when I saw your subject line was, "OOOOHHHH!!!! Study groups!!!" I think the tutor is a great idea -- but I think study groups would be absolutely great for you. Not only would you get company studying, and do some good work by having some other minds to bounce things off of, but you'd also get some really good social practice. I know you've mentioned being a bit nervous around people at times -- study groups are great ways to get practice, in a fairly safe place.

Good luck with your class, Deneb. I hope you do well in it -- and I hope that you do find a study group. They can be a hell of a lot of fun, too.
