This sense of convincing oneself that they have done enough is the worst enemy a student can make for him or herself. Instead of setting time limits on study sessions, focus more on content. Set realistic targets involving various chapters or tests. Set targets such as ‘today I will complete chapter one and two’, ‘tomorrow chapter three and four’ and so on.
