|I reread the OP again.
To answer how you should study is really difficult as most people achieve results differently. Some like to study in the morning. Some in the evening. Some in seclusion...you get the idea.
The challange of learning for the ppl is everything is connected. Want to learn about altimetry...need to know some meterology as it pertains to the atmosphere. Which do you study first?
This is strictly from personal experience on exams over the years. First get the TC study guide , or, again, whatever its called. It used to give all the subjects in a list.
Now go through everything fairly in depth and get an overall picture of the course material.
Then work through each part in detail.
For a ppl it might help to connect it to a flight...
For example...before flight...document check...know the documents you need on board
Weather..how to check. How to interpret
Weight and balance. Includes requirement to know type of fuel, weight of fuel, standard pax weights, vfr reserve requirements, and more...
When you have gotten more into the ground schoold plan the flight...
Requires knowledge of vfr cruising altitudes, airspace vfr requirements, radio, air speed corrections, wind corrections...etc.
This will help put it all together.....maybe. It hopefully replaces the learn to pass the test with I can see why I need to know this.
When you bump into something, for example, the fuel colour , weight etc, go to the FTGU and look at fuels. Different colours, weights etc. Get into the POH and look at fuel burns. Dont just go and flip through the FTGU and say...ah yes...the colour of 100ll is blue. Ask yourself what colour is jet A . What what happens if you mix them...
I dont know if this will help you in your exam, but I found , many years ago, pilots that did this completed their PPLs is less flight time, and in advanced training, relating things to what you are doing is a benefit. At a couple hundred an hour for dual, you are getting well paid to study.
BTW...free advice. Take it for what you paid for it
