    I do see the potential to save time. For someone who has never tried this system, it does seem like a significant risk to take if you plan to stick to it for the whole year.

    My fear of this could be likened to your fear of PBL
    You do it alongside whatever system you're planning to do anyway (well, not system, method - you know what I mean!) - then if it doesn't work just drop it. I'm still going to make notes in lectures and do all that kind of traditional stuff, just use this system alongside to (hopefully) cement my knowledge a bit more. This time next year I'll let you know if it's all just a load of codswallop or if it actually works!

    I did GCSE Italian in my gap year at college evening classes once a week. It was just a little learning to keep me in the habit as I realised I was starting to get far too comfortable with coming home from my desk job and having no studying to do in the evening. It wasn't particularly hard work, it was something I enjoyed, but it just kept the brain cells ticking over now and then. Aside from that I didn't do any other studying, certainly didn't revise any bio / chem.
