Third although some people can read a chapter

This preview shows page 9 - 10 out of 10 pages.

Third, although some people can read a chapter carefully in one sitting, not everyone can. If and when you feel your attention to be wandering, take a short break. Then return to reading once you’re able to concentrate again. Fourth, read each chapter carefully at least twice before exams (e.g., before class and then again closer to the time of exams). Fifth , when studying for the exams, make use of your highlights and margin notes as you review the chapters one last time. But do that in a specific way. Although it is gratifying to take a look at your notes and realize how much you remember, don’t spend valuable time going over what you already know well. Instead, devote that last hour or so to selective reading and review—about material you don’t know so well. Sixth, don’t just memorize definitions, apply the definitions with practical examples. Seventh, read all articles before discussing them in-class and come up with appropriate questions to discuss about the article.

3) As soon as you can after class, take about 15-20 minutes to go back through your notes to fill in gaps, while the lecture is still fresh in your mind. You’ll be amazed at how much you remember and at how complete your notes will be when you prepare for exams. 4) After you’ve studied on your own, review with one or two other students in class (i.e., quiz each other). The best strategy for making good use of your exam preparation time is to study alone, then review together. 6) Attend each and every class; no one can take notes for you better than you.

    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.
