My life is a little crazy I have four children, I'm taking 14 credit hours and working two part-time jobs. All I do right now in my free time and study for anatomy. I just had my first Lab quiz and lecture exam I made an 89 on my lap quiz and an 85 on my lecture exam. Wow these grades are technically okay I'm really not happy with my scores. I probably study at least one hour a day sometimes two depending on my course schedule and about two hours a day on the weekends. I just feel like for the amount of studying that I'm doing I should be walking away from class with an a. Right now I'm reading my book listening to lectures, or use a dry erase marker and page protectors to help me learn the things that I need to learn I do all of the online exercises listen to MP3s and I even download podcast from other biology professors to listen to. I know I'm putting the required time in but I'm starting to wonder if I'm not studying smart enough does anyone have any suggestions for me?
