I find that repetition is key for me! Luckily, my professors record their lectures and post them onto our student website (Blackboard). Because of that, I listen to the lectures while viewing the powerpoints that go along with the lessons, all while writing down the gist of what the professors say. If I have a questions about anything, I go to the textbook to clarify and to get more information. Going to the textbook for specific topics is helpful for me so I do not get overwhelmed with information. Going in a linear fashion with the recorded lectures also helps me so that I will not get confused. Some topics require a lot of definition memorization, so I utilize flashcards. Sometimes I will even carry them in my purse so that when I am on the go I can get a quick study session in!
