The first time I was in college I didn’t put a lot of effort in to my classes. I mean, I did all the assignments, participated in class discussions, and generally performed well enough. I never tested very well, though, often getting poorer scores than the people I helped, but I was ok with that. Ok enough to not read the text books or learn how to study for tests. Until my senior year when I started Organic Chemistry. I got through the first term with my normal habits and received a B, but, by the second week of the second term, I knew I was in trouble! I dropped out and started over, even auditing the first term again. And this time, I used every resource available and learned how to STUDY! Crazy! I worked so hard at it, I couldn’t part with any of my materials … Until now. Here are too many photos for anyone else to be interested in, but it was pretty significant for me.
The text book. Which I read, highlighted and wrote in:
The study guide for the text book. Which I read and did the activities in. WOW.
My notebook, which held all my notes and completed activities.
My lab notebook.
