I need some study skills help. I'm a first semester nursing student and I am also taking anatomy and physiology II. This is not my first time in college, I have earned a Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree, I just can't seem to find a career job.
My problem is that for my first nursing exam, I didn't study at all and got an 88. The next test, I studied a lot more and got a 78. Now this test, I studied like crazy, watching videos, reading the textbook, making flash cards, study groups, practice NCLEX questions, reviewing my notes, and I got a 76. I feel like the more study I get lower grades. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong or tricks to improve? I am at my wits end. Thanks,
(And yes, I have tried to review my exams, but my prof never shows up to her own office hours or appts she makes with me. I've tried.)
