Music in My Heart has it right on! I didn't find the coloring books that helpful but flashcards were essential! Also, she's right, remember your terminology, if you can understand prefixes and or roots of a word, it will help you to remember what the word means. Also, for our practicals, I would take pictures of the models, print them and write what they were on the back, for histology, I would print out pictures of the tissues that we were required to know, paste them to flash cards and write the answers on the back as well. I cannot stress enough that you have to breathe and relax. I would look at the information, feel completely overwhelmed and freak!! I wasted my time saying that it was impossible to learn all this! Also, try to study a little bit a day, you don't realize all the information you retain....good luck!
