Ok so I have been trying to improve my study habits a bit. I would like to try and generally have enough time to study and do extracurricular work such as volunteering at a lab or for a Professor or try and get a internship at some company. But to be able to do this I need to refine my study skills a bit. I have been trying to do this with my current course, Intro Physics. I would like to know how some of you generally go about understanding the concepts. When are you happy with how much you understand or how do you go about understanding a concept? I would like to be able to understand something so that I can apply to many different situations which I believe is a must in my future if I would like to work in Biotechnology Industry. Also, do any of you have some good books that might have changed the way you thought of approaching Physics or studying in general. Or any books that made you think differently when it came to Physics or chemistry style courses?
