    Does anyone have any advice how to be successful with all those assigned readings? I do not mean to skip the reading, only to get the most out of it, to understand and memorize it.Any hint will be highly appreciated, and I wish all of us GOOD LUCK!

    I give myself a quick quiz on the assigned chapters in UPrep / Craven before reading as a pretest. It helps me see the focus of the material in advance and to budget my time for more difficult chapters. Then I skim the PowerPoint for the chapter, then I do the reading. For me, it speeds up the reading a lot to know the key points in advance.

    The Craven book is a little wordy so I take steps to see the focus before reading, which helps me save time and retain the material a little better.
