How much time should be devoted to training? How much training time should there be before I can expect to see some results?

As is the case with going to the gym and working out or with learning to play a musical instrument, improvements through mental exercise are gradual and take time. Clinical experience has shown that a minimum of two hours per week is needed to make progress with this training system. More training time is better, and the training can be done intensely up to two hours per day. If you wish, training can be broken up into two or three 15-minute segments per day. Very brief training, such as one half hour a week will in all likelihood do nothing to enhance a person’s cognitive skills. Any generalization of results or benefits is not expected until at least twenty hours of training have been completed. The rate of improvement is different for each individual. The focus is to keep moving up the levels. Formal evaluations should be done after 20, 40, 60 and 80 hours of cognitive training to assess improvements and re-evaluate training goals.
