Creating an NPLEX study schedule will be an individual process, different for each student. Look at the time period before the examination days (4 weeks or 12 weeks). Do you have any commitments during this time? Are you attending any weddings or birthdays? Are you working part-time? Consider these factors first. Our general recommendation is to treat NPLEX studying like a full-time job. In other words, studying 5 days a week, for 8 hours per day. If you are a morning person, set-up your study days so that most of your time is spent studying in the morning. If you are a night-owl, set-up your study days that way. The top recommendation based on medical research is to study test material in conditions that are similar to how you will actually be tested. In this case, NPLEX runs during the day in a large and generally quiet room, so the optimal study day will run from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. daily.
