How can I study anatomy better to be more successful on my tests ?
I would suggest printing lecture notes from class and saving those in a binder. Highlight the important topics(ex. where the professor spends a lot of time or main categories, etc). Additionally, I would then organize your binder by using sticky post-it notes or tabs to section off and organize each section that will be on one test. I would review all assigned texts and highlight them in the book too. After doing these things I would review back through the materials periodically and then all together when you start studying review for the test. Set aside plenty of extra time ahead of time to study. I would suggest several days ahead of the expected test at least. Try to set aside undistracted focused time for your studies. I personally like going to a coffee shop, library, or at home at my desk when nobody else is at home to distract me. Best of luck on your upcoming test, please let me know if I can be of any more help. Thank you, -Leanna
