First semester was harder than I gave it credit for- I did well on the first two tests (94% on each), got cocky, and my last 3 grades were significantly lower. I still ended up with a B in the course, but I know I can do better than that, I just don't know how to study.
Any study tips? I am starting a study group because I know that discussing the material helps, but do you guys have any tips for studying on my own? I get so frustrated because I never had to study before so I felt like I'd been "thrown to the lions," but not by anyone but myself.
Also, my back started to hurt from lugging around my textbooks, binders, and my laptop in my backpack. Any recommendations for a rolling briefcase that's not TOO expensive but can hold multiple 1900+ page books? Last semester I only had my one fundamentals class plus clinical (8 credit hours total) and next semester I have med/surg and OB.
Thank you all for the advice I've seen on here, I may not post often, but I look through the threads and see a lot of great ideas thrown around.
