I see you are a first semester student. So how can you begin to know what will happen by the end?
I am a crammer and I graduate in May. I have gotten an A 2 semesters and a B+ the first semester. Please dont make sweeping generalizations, for I have NOT been "weeded" out. I also scored a 1052 on the Hesi, so I AM learning the information. I am far from lazy, I am better under pressure. This is not true and will not work for everyone. As I said before, find what works the best for you and stick with it
I already have 2 degrees, so I do not have to be a 4th semester student to give studying advice. I am no "newbie" at school. :roll
I am also not making sweeping generalizations. Studies show crammers are typically unorganized, which is why many of them study at the last minute. Crammers are also shown to forget most of the information he/she tried to learn within minutes of taking an exam. Plus, cramming takes little to no effort, which is why many hard working people consider cramming to be lazy bx.
As for students being weeded out, that is common knowledge in my program. Instructors and other nursing students have informed my class that people who cram get weeded out. Of course with every rule there is an exception so someone like you would be considered an exception.
If you risked cramming rather then truly learning and found great results that is fine for you and your personal standards. Personally, I worked too hard and for too long
to be where I am at to try to be an exception to that rule. I am striving to comprehend not just regurgitate information. I am striving to excel at learning not just get great test scores. Thus, I will not cram.
Furthermore, I will not suggest to any one that he/she should cram because people like you exist. Especially since many people who cram may be good test takers despite having very little knowledge. :spin:
