Week 4

Week 4

wk4chart Bryan Nehl - Journal Observations

Last week I estimate 20 for posting the results to the web. The actual value was 27min. The extra time was because I ended up downloading Windows Live Writer to be able to post the tables with grid lines. I anticipate 20 or less this week.

This week was a heavy reading and video week. In something of a reversal, this week the productivity numbers were flip-flopped on the papers compared to the text. This weeks text was very information dense. The IEEE papers have several pages of boiler plate at the front and often appendices that may be skimmed. I did notice that if you consider video time as in class time, I spent roughly three times the amount of time outside of class as in.

Thinking about the future, I need to be more disciplined in the use of my time. However, I need to be considerate of the time needed to absorb the material and the time needed for recharging.
