I record all my lectures! On my recorder I have 5 different files so I use file A for Med-Surg and file B for Pharm. This way I can keep track of what class I am listening too. The mnemonics did not help me really...I read the book, outlined the chapter, did the online testing accompying the book, did all the check point questions in the chapter, along with the questions at the back of the chapter. Then on the rare occassion we were given a study guide for A&P, I made 3x5 cards of the questions and added information from lecture and my notes to the card to study for the test. I ended up with an A for the class doing it this way. Now that I am in Module 2 about to start Module 3, my studying has laxed a bit b/c I am getting burned out. With no break between these modules, it is so hard and now just study to pass the class or test. I am still though an honor student...3.83 GPA, but as I stated before, these two modules are intense with alot of HW and writing as well as reading. On Friday is our Pharm 1 final and then we have to hand write 30 pages of notes front and back of the paper to remediate our Fundamentals HESI for Module 1 that has to be turned in on Sept. 28th to move forward into module 3 along with studying for our comprehensive final for Med-Surg 1! It is just insane all the writing you have to do!
