    Write it out all over again, while you are reading. Pick out the information you know is important and write it down. That’s the way I study for exams and is what I learned in university. I would go through my notes, the textbook and any videos the professors posted and write down everything I felt was important and would be on the exam. You may not realize it but you do remember it.

    This is what I do too, though my professors post more presentations than videos. :rolleyes:
    And it helps to prepare topics a professors repeats often during lecture or go through the exam study guide professors post.

    I’m in my first year as a Pre-Med student and I’m having a difficult time studying for exams. I am a visual learner, so to just go through and study my notes and look over the textbook isn’t working that well for me. Does anyone have any tips or ideas on how to make my studying more efficient?

    Welcome to the forum [USER=129]Cealia[/USER]! I’m a pre-med too. As already suggested, you should check out Khan Academy, especially their MCAT section as it will prepare you for that alongside pre-med studies. An alternate would be to watch the animated videos on the textbook companies official website by using the online student access card or code that comes with your textbook. It helps too.
