Study Tips Different subjects require different methods of study. This may be your first science class or you may have some anxiety about taking a science class. Science is fun but it takes more effort in learning than some other subjects. This is mostly because of technical language that you have to learn and then apply in a short period of time. It is worthwhile to put aside an hour or so and work on the glossaries I have given you and try to understand what these terms mean. Then when you come to read the material and come to lecture you will have a better understanding of what is being discussed. Efficient reading of scientific textbooks also requires a different technique. One technique is as follows 1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
