If men, whose examinations come in such a way as to compel them to do some studying during the recess, would do all their work in the first few days and then rest entirely, they would be much more benefited than if they worked in a desultory manner all the time. They would probably accomplish more, and would certainly come back to their work at the beginning of the term feeling much more refreshed. The man who has kept up his courses in a conscientious manner during the term, is in need of rest, and every day's application to his studies in vacation detracts just so much from his ability to study when the next term opens. Such a man ought not to do a particle of work.
