I get bored quickly with constant reading...so I try and switch it up a bit.
I used Khan Academy for A&P and brushing up on my math skills so I could kick pharm math's butt!
They use videos but they are not boring, they are set up just as if the professor was doing a one on one with you....very engaging!
Also those CD's that come with the text books aren't there to justify charging you up the wazzoo, they offer many tools such as animations and games and sample exam questions (you will be surprised how many end up on your exams!!!) .
Make flash cards!! Keep them simple with just a few words that get the message across...often I just use bullet points. The act of writing these out helps cement them in your brain.
Depending on the professor, sometimes they do their lectures while reading from the book, I highly suggest you sit in class following in the book with your highlighter poised...as when a teach emphasizes a certain point, it's typically on the exam! I use two different highlighters...one for when I read at home and one for the classroom.
Think of silly memorization tools and share them with classmates as they will often start making their own and sharing those too! Ex for simple pharm math conversions
I remember Kg-G-mg-mcg by saying to myself "King George makes macaroni"...silly yes but if you have that down you can do any metric conversion bc even liters follow the same scale up and down, just replace the G with a L!
I say switch it up and you have many different types of "pass throughs" of information to grasp the technique.
