ive written out a summary of a reading for one of my classes, then went to the lecture and got almost all the same info, but some stuff i wrote down she didnt even talk about.. so it wont be on an exam or anything? or could it still be since its in the readings
It really depends on how you learn. For me, I'm able to read something once and remember it as soon as I see it again on multiple choice. I don't need to write anything out.
But some people remember/understand things by writing them out.
Just because she didn't talk about it in class doesn't mean it won't be on the midterm/exam. Don't ever assume that.
