Sometimes I think I study TOO much. I'm thinking that maybe it is because my study habits
are poor. What I find that I end up doing is reading the same material over and over and over and over - Is that what studying is really about? That is a stupid question, but I want an honest answer. One of my instructors said that that was the way to do it - To expose yourself to the information over and over until it "sticks". The problem I have with this is it is making studying a real drag. I used to love it, but with NS, I am finding myself having to read the same things over and over x100+ to make it stick. It becomes torturous sometimes, but I still force myself to do it. This week, I have FOUR major tests on top of clinicals and I am studying all day/most of the night, but it consists of reading the same material many, many times over and over. I mentioned this to one of my NS friends in class and she laughed and said she'd go crazy doing that, but she still spends the same amount of time as I do studying - So it got me thinking about HOW she studied, but I felt stupid to ask. :icon_roll
On a typical week, I study about 4-5 hours/night, but on Sundays I do about 7-8+ since my husband is home to watch the kids that day. I do take off Friday night from studying. When I tell people this they think I am nuts, even other nursing students...Is that really a lot? Am I over doing it? :spin:
Would love for some feedback on studying tips/habits!!
Oh, and I do recieve all A's doing it this way, forgot to mention...
