What Studying Position To Use, Does It Even Matter?

In the past, I’ve discussed the importance of using favorable studying locations but also the debate over studying in groups or alone. Then, I received a few interesting questions regarding what position candidates should use when studying the CFA. Standing? Seated at a desk or in front of the tv, maybe even in a vertical position?

It’s All About Being Efficient

I’m not convinced there is one superior position to use. Most probably study in a seated position, ideally with a comfortable chair and a well adjusted desk. That can obviously work wonders and is certainly the more standard position. I’m a big believer in the fact that we are all very different and we each have different levels of productivity.

For Me, It’s All About Diversity

Personally, as I’ve already mentionned, I try to do a bit of everything. That means sitting, but also doing some stuff while watching tv, studying some things to learn by heart while taking a walk, taking small notes that I can look at while in the bus or subway. I typically only keep the same position for a few hours or so and then change.

How about you? What is your most productive studying position and how often do you alternate those?
