I find that at times studying gives me a feeling of deep personal satisfaction.
I find that at times studying gives me a feeling of deep personal satisfaction.
I find that I have to do enough work on a topic so that I can form my own conclusions 
before I am satisfied.
My aim is to pass the course while doing as little work as possible.
I only study seriously what’s given out in class or in the course outlines.
I feel that virtually any topic can be highly interesting once I get into it.
I find most new topics interesting and often spend extra time trying to obtain more 
information about them.
I do not find my course very interesting so I keep my work to the minimum.
I learn some things by rote, going over and over them until I know them by heart even if 
I do not understand them.
I find that studying academic topics can at times be as exciting as a good novel or 
movie.
I test myself on important topics until I understand them completely.
I find I can get by in most assessments by memorising key sections rather than trying to 
understand them.
I generally restrict my study to what is specifically set as I think it is unnecessary to do 
anything extra.
I work hard at my studies because I find the material interesting. 
I spend a lot of my free time finding out more about interesting topics which have been 
discussed in different classes. 
I find it is not helpful to study topics in depth. It confuses and wastes time, when all you 
need is a passing acquaintance with topics.
I believe that lecturers shouldn’t expect students to spend significant amounts of time 
studying material everyone knows won’t be examined.
I come to most classes with questions in mind that I want answering.
I make a point of looking at most of the suggested readings that go with the lectures.
I see no point in learning material which is not likely to be in the examination.
I find the best way to pass examinations is to try to remember answers to likely questions.
