How many hours work / learn "in a row"?
What is the maximum number of hours you can learn at a time or what would you recommend?

Are there any studies on when the brain becomes unusable?

About two hours.

After that, the head needs at least a short recovery. Your head is fully receptive for about six to eight hours a day.

Including breaks, that would be a university day of around ten hours. At work, there are also routine tasks that you don't have to think about too much, because of course the time increases there.

In effect, it looked something like this for me during the exam:

9-10:30 first learning unit

10:30 am - 11 am break

11 am - 12:30 pm second learning unit

12.30pm - 2.30pm lunch break

2.30 p.m. - 4.30 p.m. third learning unit

4:30 p.m. - 5 p.m. break

17 - 19 fourth learning unit

Re: How many hours work / learn "in a row"?
that seems like a lot to me.
everyone learns as much as he likes or can.
For example, i learn a maximum of one hour a day and not even that in one go, but i start on time.

I think the less you learn, the easier it is to remember what you learn.

In contrast to learning, I have time for rest and for sport, for example. i need a lot of free time to feel good, but that too is different for every person

But then you also need a course where one hour a day is enough to cover all of the material. But that will probably only be the case with very few courses.

Re: How many hours work / learn "in a row"?
I think it will be very different.

At the moment I am studying 6-8 hours a day without breaks.

But I've already taken it to the extreme with 10-12 hours a day. Breaks were added again. But there was no longer any free time. Learn to sleep, learn to sleep ... It wasn't nice, but the exam and the material required it ...

And who now thinks again, blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah ... I know how long I've learned and it is possible when you have a goal in mind and that was the extreme screening exam in my studies ...

Re: How many hours work / learn "in a row"?
In my opinion, these are all extreme cases

One hour a day is probably not enough for very few people and courses to pass the exams.
In my opinion, 6 to 8 hours are far too much to be able to learn effectively.

I usually study 3 to 5 hours a day before exams. This is much more effective than 6 to 8 hours or even more, because the head stays fresh and you have a balance.

You should try to divide the learning material correctly. This means that there are no extreme learning phases.

Apart from the fact that the discussion is gradually drifting away from my original question, I would like to know how many days or weeks (at a time) it is?

You all state how much you learn each day before exams / exams. But it also depends on how many days or weeks in advance?

I suspect: If you start studying four weeks in advance, 1 hour a day is probably enough for most exams.

But what if you start studying just a week or a few days in advance?

And maybe one can also discuss the definition of learning at this point. When do you learn? When you learn something by heart? When you read something? When you type in slides?

Re: How many hours work / learn "in a row"?
Five days a week plus a five-hour mock exam on Saturdays for a little over a year But that is also the state examination, in the end you have only filled a regular working day with learning.

1 hour a day per exam, ok. But how many exams do you often write in the exam phase? Four or five quickly come together and you're back to the five hours a day mentioned

The discussion is based exactly on your original question

I start with the semester break on February 11th, my first exam is on March 5th, my last on March 19th.
Accordingly, I study 3 to 6 hours every day from February 11 to March 19, Monday to Friday (except on the exam days themselves). I divide the material so that in the first two weeks I only learn material from the first two exams and then add material from the third exam, etc.

Learning is everything that contributes to having the material for the exams. "How" one has to learn depends in turn on the subject, the structure of the examination, etc.
As a rule, I write summaries (similar to index cards, sorted by topic, short and concise) for the subjects that I have to learn by heart and then only learn these.
For the subjects where you have to do arithmetic, I only do exercises.
When it comes to comprehension subjects, I usually learn from books and may also write a summary.
