studying for tests?!
i couldnt help but notice that for the majority of courses, there is only a FEW tests, meaning not enough chances to make up your mark asides from the final. any advice on how to effectively and efficiently go through course material when studying? I am used to rewriting and reading and rereading and it seems like i dont have that luxury with the amount of material and number of coursses I have.

I can't really say, since it largely depends on your learning style: Visual, Auditory, or Kinesthetic. Use whichever technique works best for you. I'm more of an auditory learner, so I learn by "presenting" the information.

Seeing as I'm an Auditory learner, what I do is that sometimes it's better I study with another individual in the same class. I then try and present the information to them seeing if I could interpret it and explain it in my own words and that person would be able to understand . If that works for you, then doing the test would be easy because then you'd remember it from your view rather than the textbook version which could be complicating.

But if that doesn't work for you, then I suggest you figure out which type of learner you are and work towards studying in that specific category.
