Nutrition Study Help

  1. Anyone have any study tips for Nutrition. I have an exam on Carbs, Fats and Proteins coming up. I know it's not the hardest subject but for some reason I am having trouble memorizing this info. Any tips or study guides anyone would like ot share would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Melanie

    Nutrition was my favorite class...
    The book was BORING! So, I looked up some information online to help me understand things better.
    I use notecards to memorize facts. Fill in the blank, multiple choice, T/F... you'd be suprised how much you remember when you are done with that! Also, I used foods to remind myself of facts... for example, when I wanted to remember something about trans-fats, I thought of Oreos (since Oreos have trans-fat in them)... it sounds weird, but at the test when I freaked out... the food reminders seemed to stick with me.

    Good Luck

    W/fats, I just remembered thinking that sitting on the beach under a PALM tree, eating CHOCOLATE and drinking pina coladas (COCONUT) was bad for you. These fats were terribly saturated!!!

    How in depth do you have to go? We just had a test on those things last week. What things do you have to know? Fats were a bit tricky for me. Do you need to know hormones? The way I learned these things was to write an outline of the chapter and notes combined. It was boring and tedious, but I got the information down pat.
