from being overwhelmed. This tip is very important because if you save the Objectives you can get in the situation where you can’t finish them and therefore do poorly on the exam. 4. Try writing out your responses to the Objectives while watching the Lecture videos again . For many students it is a real effective way to remain engaged and attentive, and therefore, learn the material more quickly. 1

5. One of the biggest mistakes students can make is to treat the “Challenge Questions and Reading Questions” (in the Appendix of the Course Pack) as only an assignment and not as an important LEARNING tool. YOU SHOULD NOT IGNORE ANSWERS to the Challenge Questions and Reading Questions. The Challenge Questions and Reading Questions and the ANSWERS to the Challenge Questions and Reading Questions contain NEW material that students are responsible for on exams. Important message! Several questions on each Unit Exam are likely to come from the Challenge Questions and Reading Questions and the ANSWERS to those questions! You should work through and understand the Challenge Questions and Reading Questions, including the textbook readings assigned with those questions, and read and understand the ANSWERS to the Challenge Questions and Reading Questions all are fair game for exams . 6. Do all Practice Questions* to help you understand the material and to help prepare you for exams. Figure out why the right answers are right and FIGURE OUT WHY THE WRONG ANSWERS ARE WRONG. This can be huge; “memorizing” the right answers can be a recipe for failing exams. *WHAT ARE THE “PRACTICE QUESTIONS” ? The practice questions include the Comprehension Checks (answered in videos posted on D2L), the Study Questions (after the Learning Objectives in the Course Pack), Extra Study Questions (in the Appendix of the Course Pack), Challenge Questions and Reading Questions and the ANSWERS to those questions (in the Appendix of the Course Pack), Homework questions and Case Study questions (answers posted on D2L after the week’s in-class sessions, in “Homework Answers” and “Study Guide for the Case Studies”). 7. DO THE STUDY QUESTIONS IN “ROUNDS”. THE QUESTIONS WILL BE MORE EFFECTIVE IF YOU DO SOME AND COME BACK LATER AND DO MORE. Research has shown that you will learn the most if you come back later and have to retrieve what you have learned earlier. The Study Questions are written in rounds; you can easily do some and then some later and then some later (it’s much less effective if you do them all at once and only once). You should also come back and re-do the other Practice Questions multiple times to enhance your learning . 8. Realize that for almost all students, physiology is one of their most challenging courses and that it is the kind of course which requires at least 2-3 hours of studying a week for each hour of lecture. Make sure you devote enough time to studying the material and enough time for it to “sink in”; allow enough time for the “light bulb to come on”.

    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.
