Hi everyone. I am about to go into 3rd semester nsg and I still have yet to find a great way to study and learn the material effectively. I just finished my 202 final today....I got an 88 (B) and I got a B for the semester, not bad, BUT I still feel like I don't know how to study and take notes well. I don't wait until the last minute, yet there I am scrambling every time. I have the recorder, the handouts, the book and my own notebook. By the time I get to study I have hours of notes to put together which usually takes me a good 2-3 days of mind numbing, carpel tunnel causing (insert bad word here
) note taking. Ok, so what I'd like to know is....what's the secret? How do I pass the tests without the cramping, blindness and delerium? How do you study and learn the material? Do you make up stories, songs, only read the text etc...? I need some help because this is causing major problems in my life....for instance....feeling like I don't have one! Help....I feel like I'm drowning and need some great advice.
Thanks in advance!
