  1. Hi, I'm currently in my 3rd year of an undergraduate science degree, and I am having trouble with my study techniques. The majority of my classes are heavily information based powerpoint style lectures with many facts and concepts (immunology, pharmacology, biochem, etc). I have always written out entire lectures straight from the powerpoint onto looseleaf after class and it is extremely time consuming. I feel like I am spending more time writing out lectures than actually "studying". It is now becoming way too time consuming and when exams come around I spend the time that I would be normally writing out lectures, studying and rereading notes, which puts me even further behind. In high school I never really studied except for my mom quizzing me the night before (funny I know, but god bless her as I finished 2nd in my graduating class) and I always did well. Does anyone find re reading ppt slides to be just effective and more efficient than writing them out. Any input would be helpful!!
  2. I wanted to ask you guys, how do you ensure that you are very thorough and don't miss things when you are studying. Turns out when I'm studying, I understand the big concepts and I can connect them together, but on an exam, there will be like 15% of the exam that questions minor details the prof may have mentioned once or twice. My friends tell me I have to be thorough, and know little details, in addition to the big concepts. This has always been a problem for me. In high school when there was a knowledge, communication, thinking, and application section, I would score well on thiking and application but on knowledge, not so well. Please give me tips on how to be VERY THOROUGH when studying for university exams. Thank you in advance.
  3. I was just hoping to get some advice about this. I am planning on writing my MCAT next summer (first attempt) and I would like to dedicate my summer (3-4 months) on studying for it and practicing as much as I can. However, it dawns on me that I may not be able to maintain a summer job this way, nor dedicate myself to a volunteer position as a regular volunteer. I have heard about people who have balanced studying and other things before, but I would like to devote as much time as I can in one summer term, rather than having to repeat it because of divided responsibilities. Would you recommend balancing or devoting? Am I overthinking this? I am not looking to fill up my resume just for the sake of it; it is just that I have worked with a great PI for two years now and I would love to continue to work for him in the future - just think this gap would jumble things up.
  4. So all throughout my first two years of undergrad, I have been writing out my notes after lectures to help with retention and then re-reading/ teaching my self out loud while studying before an exam (and using whiteboards). But of course, this was over a longer semester period and with fewer subjects to know. I am writing the MCAT Sep. 1st and was just wondering (because of the vast amount of information we need to know/ understand for one test) would you recommend following my same procedure or using typed notes which I review? *I am also balancing a job on top of this so I do not have the same time/ study schedule as another student devoting their whole summer to this. How did you/ do you study? Thanks in advance!
  5. Good evening everyone, I've created an app to prepare for the Hole Punching section in the PAT. It is currently FREE on the App Store for iPhone and iPad. It can be found here, https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dat-hole-punching/id1201489406?ls=1&mt=8 or search “DAT Hole Punching” on iOS App Store. I will continue to add more fold types to broaden the pool of questions. Not to say there’s not already a big pool of questions (the current app can probably generate in the hundreds of thousands of different questions.) But more variety to base the questions off of, especially questions with at least 3 folds, will make it more challenging and better for preparing for the DAT. So, I’ll be updating that. Also, my first app for Angle Ranking can be found here, https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dat-angle/id1114175055?ls=1&mt=8 or search “DAT Angle Ranking” on iOS App Store. It now cost 99 cents to download since I am hoping to at least break even with apple dev fees and other expenses. I hope you guys will understand. Still, I created these app to make accessing test prep material cheaper and easier; so if you can’t pay, feel free to contact me at https://www.facebook.com/EnDent-1076779419115415/ and I’ll be happy to help. Keep in mind, there’s only one of me but I’ll try to respond as soon as I can. P.S. If you find the apps helpful, please support me and leave a good review and like my facebook page. It's so lonely lol . Happy Studying!
  6. Hey! So I've spent the last 3 months of summer studying for the cDAT but now that school has started I'm finding it hard to manage both. Any tips or strategies?
  7. Hello everyone, As a third year UofC nursing student, I have recently started my clinical rotation at the hospital where theory content that focuses on pathophysiology and pharmacology are applied to hands-on practice. However, I have a minimal background in the sciences because I did not take any undergraduate courses related to biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, or physics during my first year. Most of my courses in year 1 were geared toward the social sciences (psychology and sociology), anatomy and physiology, statistics, and an ethics course. Years 2, 3, and 4 are strictly allocated to nursing theory courses and practicums. Therefore, I'm unable to take science courses during the academic year. I am hoping to write the MCAT when I have four months off from school during the summer of 2016. Due to my minimal background in the sciences, I will most likely self-teach. My current plan at the moment: - I will study from the end of April to mid-August. I will take the MCAT at the end of August. - I will most likely be working part time. Therefore, I will allocate 5-6 hours per day, 6-7 days a week, for studying. (I am contemplating taking a prep course to supplement my learning, but I am still unsure as to which prep course I will utilize.) - I will be using the Kaplan prep books that I have already purchased and most likely supplement with EK resources in more difficult areas My questions: - What else can I do to improve my chances at at a competitive MCAT score? - Is taking an extra year, after I graduate, to take science courses a good idea? (I am still weighing the benefits and consequences of this. If I do choose to do this, I will have a wider array of possible medical schools due to completing the pre-requisites.) - Any other advice for a nursing student hoping to attend medical school? If there is anyone in a similar situation, I'd love to hear your story.
