EOP Study Time & Time Management
A minimum of 2 hours per class unit.

To achieve an A or a 4.0 GPA at a research institute most professors expect you to study anywhere from 47 to 59 hours per week
on average. The normal study ratio is 3:1 (3 hours of study time per (1) class unit)
17 units x 3 hours study (per 1) unit = 51 hours of study + 2 = 53 hours of study per week = A

17 units x 2 hours (per 1) unit = 34 hours of study + 2 = 36 hours of study per week = B
