Study advice

  1. Hi everyone,

    Do you have tips or advice to offer about studying, test taking, and learning in general to offer other nursing students?

    One thing that helps me the most is to do a quick read of the chapter and mark individual concepts or tables that I need to elaborate on. Then when I have read the whole chapter, I go back and find the items I have marked to read more carefully. Those are also the items I write out in my notes. Another thing I add to my notes is key words. Even if I know the definition I like to find a sentence about it to write down.

    The thing that helps most when studying for finals is after I take each test I will go back to the book and mark an F (for final) next to each sentence or idea I remembered from the test. Our finals usually have the exact same question or the same question reworded so this helps a lot for me.

    PowerPoints don't seem to help me at all. I don't even look at them after class.
