    This is an informative thread. Thank you all for sharing your study tactics!

    As for me, I tend to read ahead and make notes, or rather add points to the chapter summaries. I usually read the stuff to be covered in a week on the weekend and mark the things I have doubts about. During lecture, I try to answer my doubts and jot down the terms the professor repeats in the chapter summaries. When I get home, I read the summary over and solve the exercise problems. But, for my Anatomy and Physiology exams, I have to memorize all the bone landmarks and the associated blood vessels, muscles and everything of the sort. So, for that I make flash cards (during lecture usually) with the terms listed on one side and descriptions on the back side and keep going through them wherever and whenever I get the time to. If its something really complex, I put up copies of it all over my room and even on the bathroom mirror (lol) and just read it whenever I can. This way it sticks.

    I hope this helps a bit.
