Okay, I know there has been numerous threads on studying but I need opinions.
I usually do well my reading the chapters and make my own notes (this takes a while but it helps me retain the info). The teacher says to outline by the topics she has listed, the homework, and the powerpoints. So far it seems that it equals to everything in the chapter.
So this is what I think i'm going to do: read the chapters and make notes throughout with things that I think are important, then look at the homework and powerpoints to see what I left out, add anything missing, and then make notecards summarizing the most important things to study from. I have HUGE ones, and I plan to place them on a ring of some kind, divided up into exams. I also have my binder divided up by the exam topics. Does this seem like too much or too OCD, or does it seem like a good study method? I am a little OCD, I like to be organized and neat. I just don't want to waste any valuable time. I have 5 classes and 2 little ones, with very little study time. I'm wanting to make the most of it.
Thanks for any help/advice! & and taking the time to read and/or respond.
