I am in the second semester of nursing school. I just got done spending 8 hours yesterday working on my reading for my med-surg class, for one week. The assignment was 2 chapters of the main book and one chapter of a pharmacology book. I finished the two chapters of the main text (60 pages) but haven't started on the pharm yet, (i estimate it will take another 3 hours to read) and I still have another class to go.
I was wondering if you all really read every word/page of your assigned reading, or if you just skim? If so, how long does it usually take to do reading for one week?
I am an A/B student and found that last semester, there was one book that I didn't have to read (just quickly skim, took 1/2 hour per week), but I read every page of my main text. Ah well, guess I just have to get into the rhythm again of what is expected, just frustrated at the amount of time it is taking.
