    How do you know what to study? Also, Give yourself a darn break before you snap.

    My professors are posting reading assignments dr next sememster. I'm giving myself a solid week or two to chill though. I have four weeks off. But since I'm taking med-surg next semester I'm going to brush up on my weak areas in anatomy I have a feeling I may need to remember.

    I am a new nursing student to, and my professors has also sent out emails for us to do assignment and read several chapters. I have one more exam to do for microbiology and then I will be done for the semester. I'm beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed with everything that's going on. I'm just going to chill for a bit I have a planner so I will plan out how I will execute reading the assignments before class, and just relax with my family because I know that starting January my life is over ha ha.

    "My professors are posting reading assignments dr next semester."

    Mine also. I'll hit the books again after New Year's.

    I am taking a full week off to decompress, but we have several chapters to read and a case study to do before the first day. At least I get to spread the work out over a couple of weeks, so I won't have to stress about it too much.

    I crack my books during break. Nothing hardcore, but I do read, and I generally like the material, so it isn't a huge deal. Anything more than light reading and I end up screwing myself - if I do things TOO early, I forget everything by the time I actually need it.

    Just keeps me that much farther ahead once the semester is in full swing!

    In my program our dosage calc tests are on the first day of school so I only practice math over breaks. I wouldn't study anything unless you absolutely must. You will burn out too soon. Prior to this semester I asked one of my instructors if there were any reading assignments for the first week and she told me to relax and sit by the pool before I burn out. I think that was excellent advice from her and you should do the same but replace the pool with a fireplace
