How to study
Post No. 16772948
More than anything I'm probably hoping for people to chat with casually here. But you need like an excuse to make a thread and here's one:
I need to study hard and fast. Shit is complicated. So we have these homework assignments that came out of a textbook different from the one we use. I asked prof why and she said it was to make us work harder and use our resources to find the answers. And I'm like wtf. But anyway yeah the quizzes are loosely based on the homework assignments. She recommends redoing homework over and over to prepare for the quizzes. But it takes hours to get through one homework assignment. And I don't have the time to do that.
Then she has these study guides, which are helpful. Basically they follow the book and you fill them out as you read. This gives you a decent understanding of the material and should help with everything. I try to do all of them and make them all into flashcards. But then this information isn't really used for anything? Because the quizzes are completely different and there's material there not in the book.
And then there's the lab practicals. These are scary stressful exams with anatomical models. And she provides us with a separate study guide for these. It's completely different than the quizzes and everything else. But this I try to turn into flashcards too. She does say that something not being on the study guide doesn't guarantee that it won't be on the practical. And means it.
Does any of this make sense? How fucked am I? It doesn't help that I'm lazy and also work and have other classes and things
