    dozing out in class

    What is the difference between "dozing out" and "dozing"?

    3-7)One mistake that many students make is sitting back and dozing out in class. Individuals who pay attention and participate in class are more likely to remember the lecture. This can be especially helpful when exams are coming up and it's time to look back on notes for reminders. Some people find that cramming before a test is efficient, but for those who do not, reviewing on a regular basis can be helpful. Instead of waiting until a few days before to study, students are required to read through their notes daily. This can reduce the amount of time an individual needs to take to study prior to a big exam.

    'Dozing out' is not used by native speakers.

    In AmE you would hear/read "dozing off" or "dozing".

    Re: dozing out in class

    I filled out the missing parts, and I also doubt if this was written by a native speaker. The underlined are all doubted ones by me, so if you find some parts, would you let me know? This is from a Korean English teacher's material for the upcoming final exam, but I don't know what the source is.
