I was working through a chapter for my Web Applications Development with Microsoft .NET 4. I was just finishing the second chapter and the whole self study book has 14 chapters.
I was thinking how much progress should I be making. I had set myself an a target of doing most of the studying by the end of March.
I had also been doing practise exams, watching videos, reading around the subject. But my main target is working through this book, so I thought to myself I need to know how many pages I need to read each week so I am on target to get this done by the end of March. This is mentioned in the post – https://crmbusiness.wordpress.com/2011/01/31/seven-steps-to-certification-success/
The important factor here is the importance of setting a goal/deadline. Once you have done that then you know the amount of work you need to do each week to achieve you goal.
So with the book I’m reading, it’s 880 pages, so I roughly need to read around 100 pages a week.
I noted down all the chapters in an Excel spreadsheet so I can track my progress. Now that is sad.
