How do you study for BIOLOGY?

Senior year…last semester…and lots to prepare and look forward to. With the daily hustle of life, I simply end up doing a terrible job managing my time.

This semester, I am taking a Biology class which is completely out of my comfort zone. And since I haven’t been in touch with subject for the last 4-5 years, I am close to oblivious to the matter. However, in these first two weeks of classes, I was able to come up with a method that helps me take and make tidy notes as well as provides a second, and more detailed self-revision. Let me tell you how I do it.

I take key points down in class while Prof. Olson is explaining the concepts. These points can be scribbles or something that makes sense individually to you. It doesn’t always have to be long sentences, it could be a simple word or two, or even some symbols if you’re certain you’ll recollect what you meant by it when you read it.

Once I get home and have had time to organize and feed myself something. I sit down with my scribbles, a notebook, the text and the presentation slides shared by Prof. Olson to make my own notes. I simply write down the definitions, the chronologies, and sequences of things for reference in future. I refer the text and slides in coordination with the notes made while in class. This has helped me not only to understand the subject but also to get deeper insight.

By following this method, I get a better and fuller perspective of the concepts, and I, by default, end up revising the topics covered in class for the day.

I bet all of us have different styles and methods in place to help and assist learning processes. I wished to share mine, since I newly found this method to be extremely effective with Biology unlike with Strategic Marketing.

Hope this helps some of us to find or look for better and innovative ways to increase comprehension!
