For example, take IEWB-RS VOL1, which has a tremendous amount of material to work on. The workbook is structured in sections of different sizes. Let’s assume that you need to spend T1, T2, T3 … TN (N – number of sections) hours on section 1, 2, 3 … N but you only have T hours available for study, so that T1+T2+T3 +… +Tn > T. Of course, if T > T1+T2+…+TN, you’re a lucky person and don’t have to bother with optimizations!.

How to Study - Not a bad skill to have - Dr Robert A. Hatch How to Study Robert A. Hatch - University of Florida There's an old joke about three frat brothers discussing plans for the evening.

Question Wording Perhaps the most important part of the survey process is the creation of questions that accurately measure the opinions, experiences and behaviors of the public. Accurate random sampling and high response rates will be wasted if the information gathered is built on a shaky foundation of ambiguous or biased questions.

Questionnaire design is a multistage process that requires attention to many details at once. Designing the questionnaire is complicated because surveys can ask about topics in varying degrees of detail, questions can be asked in different ways, and questions asked earlier in a survey may influence how people respond to later questions. Researchers also are often interested in measuring change over time and therefore must be attentive to how opinions or behaviors have been measured in prior surveys.
