I'm really nervous and going over my notes now, I'm struggling with understanding metabolism, but I get everything else, I just need to memorize it more. I've got a huge stack of notecards next to me and it's making me so anxious.

And on top of that its already 4 and I'm absolutely exhausted. Test is at 9:40 tomorrow.

I really want to do well on this test. 😔

Being stressed, cramming and exhausted is only going to hurt you. Calm down. Put the stack of notecards away. Step away for a little bit. Come back and search for a resource that sheds new light on what you are not understanding. Then answer what you think the question that your professor might ask of you is. Talk out loud and think it through. Slowly. You know more than you think, I bet, but stressing this test it going to hurt you if you do not take a breath and believe you have got this!

Do you have someone to talk to? Last week I was reading on muscle tissues and I literally sat there and explained it to my 4 year old although she understands nothing of action potential. Lol. But just talking it through out loud made it loads easier.

And ditto to what the previous poster said.

I used to look at videos on YouTube & other educational sites I googled . Sometimes it's easier to understand when you can physically see the whole process & then piece together your notes from there . Good luck !

The information learned in anatomy tends to build upon each other. you probably notice that you get a lot thrown at you in one lecture. once you start getting lost you need to figure out what's confusing and why. You need to talk to the professor ASAP when you are confused. when you study do you refer to your class notes, power points, and the book? Sometimes you get more details from the book or the professor explains it better. Also try to have an understanding of the concepts rather than memorizing since you want to connect information together.

I have to disagree with a previous poster lol my brain seemed to do better when I crammed for a test. I guess the stress and adrenaline really woke my brain up. But I've learned that if you can't explain it to someone else, you don't know it. Study your book, then when you're done close it, and if you can explain to yourself exactly what you just studied (in detail) then you'll be fine on your test. Good luck!
