Okay I'm in the same position. I'm taking pathophysiology and it's an 8 week course! We have like 3 to 5 chapters a week to read. I have found that just reading and highlighting is the key. I use to make outlines and flashcards, but they waste my time. I try to get the reading done prior to lecture. I make notes on my PPT slides in class. I go home and study the notes and slides. I look up youtube videos, such as the Nucleus channel to reinforce the BIG picture. I also use the review questions bc they require you to think critically and apply your knowledge obtained from the material to a clinical setting. This is what I do, but it may be different person to person.
