Lauren, although quicker to highlight you won't learn as much. I am a fire instructor with the mas. fire academy and can tell you that by writting out info and then reading aloud (I know this will sound weird to your family if they are around) will increase your retention.

The best thing to do would be to read and highlight the entire section and then go back and write and read aloud your most critical info. Best of luck

Write your notes in a format that make the most sense to YOU! Nobody is grading our notes in this program.

RE: NEED ADVICE...HELP

I have found that typing in the answers is tedious but very helpful. I supplement this with making note cards on the most complicated or difficult to remember topics. It is time consuming, but using several different methods does make a difference, which is what you're after when it comes to making a "C" or an "A" on the exams. I found that I was overly prepared for my Ab Psych exam, and aced it easily this way. Likewise, I just aced the Ed Psych exam as well, with less than 2 months to prepare, working 24 hours a week and having a family of 5...Hang in there! Lori
