do you work or study on the weekends?

I don't ever do anything on Sunday.  I need a rest day.  Though Saturday's are different.  I usually try to do at least a couple hours of study and, if a test is close, I'll do a practice test.  


As far as work.  I've worked maybe 3 Saturdays in a year for 2-4 hours.  I also have four kids so sometime work can be more restful than just being at home trying to relax.  Also, don't think you are lazy.

If you’re not studying on the weekend, how do you get in adequate study time for an exam?

If you’re not motivated to study for an exam but you’re still passing them, it seems to be working for you. If you’re not passing exams, you need to figure out how to add in more study time, that’s just the hard truth of it.

I hated studying on weekends. So I would stay up late and study until 3 am on weekdays, and spend most of the weekend being lazy. It wasn’t healthy, but it was temporary, and it’s what worked for me.

Some friends liked to wake up early and study 2-3 hours every day before work. I’m not a morning person.

You gotta find the time, unfortunately. When you find it is up to you.

Rarely. Not the norm for insurance; cannot speak for consulting.

I do a few hours on the weekend maybe 3x per year.
(I work in predictive analytics for a P&C insurer, and finished exams 4 years ago).

Back when I was studying for exams, I would sometimes put 2-4 hours in for studying on the weekend within the two months before the exam (but only if I didn’t get enough done with my work/home study time during the preceding weekdays).

Study, yes. Work, no. I’ve only worked twice on a weekend in 3 years. And typically when I study, I go pretty hard on Saturday and maybe like an hour or two on Sunday so I don’t feel bad about being lazy the rest of the day.

Never worked a weekend. Typically study on saturday and sunday if it’s exam season. Sometimes it’s none one day and a lot the other if my wife plans something for the day

Definitely study. Sunday afternoons are a great time to get that in.

Work, I haven't had to yet, but I wouldn't mind doing a few simple tasks (like running a couple programs that take a few hours) if it meant saving me hours and stress during the week.

Hell no - unless something is on fire, I try not to be online or thinking about work outside of weekdays 9am-6pm. I’m also done taking exams, which makes a huge difference. It sounds like you need to figure out a way to be less mentally drained throughout the week, whether that’s taking more frequent breaks, finding particular activities to help destress, adding more physical activity throughout the day, etc. If there’s too much on your plate at work, you should talk to your manager/team about that. Studying while working full time sucks full stop, so be gentle with yourself and set realistic goals on what you can get done. Maybe try to break up your study material into super bite-sized chunks that you can do in 30 min intervals any time throughout the week, and reward yourself with something fun or that gives you a little bit of joy for each chunk you finish.
