Hi Everyone, I need some advice; I want to become a better student and I have no idea how to do it. One of the things that I need to work on is figuring out a different way to approach learning because what I'm doing is NOT working. I'll explain this in a second. Another area that I need to improve in is balancing class work. How do people take 3+ difficult classes at once and still get A's? I'm really frustrated right now. I just spent the last 3 weeks studying for my physics exam and I got an F. Here is what I did to study: I read the chapter, after I would go through and write the key concepts of the page on a sticky note. Then I would work the example problems in the chapter. If while working them out, make a mistake, I would write to the side what I did wrong and go through it again the right way. After all of this, I would work on problems from the end of the chapter. But obviously this isn't working for me. I'm a horrible test taker, but I don't want to use that as an excuse. As for the balancing act, I always tend to do more work in one class while putting my others are on the back burner. Then when something comes up in another class I work on that. This isn't good either. There is still time for me to improve, (I'm just starting my degree program) I just need guidance on how to get to where I want to be. I apologize if this is a little wonky... I'm posting this on my phone.
