Hello guys how are you? Today, I took my first Anatomy exam on Chapters 1, Atlas A, 3 & 4. I studied for about 2-3 days (first mistake I know) . And last night, I studied from 7:30-12:a.m. I even studied this morning on my way to class. I probably made about 50 index cards with the definitions. My own study guide and all. I realized a couple mistakes. But, I was so sure, I would at least get a low B or C the most. NOT A D!!!!
1. Studying last mintue.
2. Not good studying habits. I mainly focused on certain chapters, totally skipped DNA/RNA, Plasma Membrane, & Cell cycle which was MAJORITY OF THE TEST. I focused so much on the definitions, oppose to the functions.
3. I have ADD when it comes to studying.
4.Not comphrending the material/actually going into depth.
My stomach sunk when I noticed my test score. I felt like I wasn't all so prepared, but a D. My god! I got 55 right out of 93. After, I went to my Prof's Office and he let me go over my test with the answer key, we spoke. He told me I still have a chance to get an A. However, I have no "room for anymore errors" pretty much.
However, I can't help, but feel so hopeless. I contacted some students about their studying strageties and maybe forming a study group. We have 3 more test, homework, and pretty much clicker questions. I am not so concerned about the homework or in class questions. More of the test.
Any one have any tips/advice please?
