Study Strategy: Use the Professor’s Notes

Posted on: May 30, 2009

Whoops! I did it again. I tried to teach myself chemistry 11 via the book. BAD IDEA. I couldn’t digest all the information fast enough because the book is, oh, 5 million pages long. But I didn’t like my teacher so I thought that studying on my own with a tutor would suffice. WRONG.

It seems that although I may think my professor incompetent, I still have to take his tests. And if I hope to have a chance with trying to predict the questions, I should have listened more intently to his lectures and STUDY HIS NOTES FIRST. STUDY HIS NOTES. STUDY THE PROFESSOR’S NOTES.

I made the same mistake I did in Biology–which is that I overstudied. A classmate pointed it out to me and I was able to get an A in the class because I heeded her advice. But I totally disregarded it again this semester. Damn. Now I’m scraping for a B.

Solution:  STUDY THE TEACHER’S NOTES FIRST, AND USE THE BOOK ONLY IF YOU NEED TO DECIPHER THE NOTES. BUT DON’T GO SOLELY OFF THE BOOK.
