I really want to make straight A's in all of my science prereqs. Has anyone made straight A's in all of the science prereqs? And if so, how much studying did it take?
That is a terrific goal (Straight A's) which is entirely do-able. There will be sacrifice involved however. Not in a bad way, but in giving up some of the things you may now enjoy daily.
I earned straight A's through all pre-requisites - you can too! You must understand the material - study for knowledge not for grades. Find a technique to boost your confidence and employ it always, everywhere you go.
Most importantly start a study group with your fellow students. YOU must be the leader (don't smother anyone) and in being the leader you will need to learn the material well enough to help your colleagues better understand the subject. Try it, you will see quick improvement in your knowledge base. As you help your friends understand the subject you will be reinforcing that same material in your mind.
Talk about the concepts regularly with your study group, listen to their viewpoint on the subject it may help you to understand a concept a little more clearly. In A & P study the color plates in your text know what each part shown does - describe it in your own words to your fellow study partners. Have them describe it back to you in their own words. For your exams get that color image from the text in your head and describe it on the exam as needed. I find it much easier to conjure a color image in my head and then describe it in words (in answer to specific exam questions) than to regurgitate memorized text.
With these few bits of advice you are on your way.
It worked well for me and I truly believe it will work well for you.
YOU can do it!
