I would draw pictures with colored pencils of the different things I needed to memorize. For example, I would draw the structure of the heart, label all the valves and chambers ect, then I would draw the exact same picture only in place of the labels I would make a blank box, then I would staple the two papers together with the blank box one on the top. It was sooo easy to learn this way. Also, as you will realize once you get into nursing school
, note cards are a must have. So with my picture drawings and my note cards I was able to get an A. I also read the book (I know, duh) and make outlines for the chapter. I would highlight in Yellow while I was reading on my own, then when going over it in class I would rehighlight in pink the stuff the instructor said was important, that was all that was highlighted in Orange (from the yellow mixed with the pink) I knew was stuff I needed to go over again. Good luck, you can do it!
