I was thinking about your issue with how to make it visual, and I think the skills will come most easily to you. My fundamentals book came with videos that teach the clinical skills and it makes it a million times easier. Maybe you could look around youtube to see if any student videos on fundamental themes are out there. As far as reading is concerned, my instructor recommended reading the boxes (in the text) if you were running short on time, because they have the most important information. I also think it is important not to cram too much in during one study session. Maybe just an hour at a time, then do something else for a bit, go back for another hour. Another trick is recording lectures, I listen to them when I've read too much and I need a break. I also know other students who have a long commute to school and they listen to them as they drive. Anyway, just some ideas some of us are throwing around. I hope it all starts falling into place for you!
