I took my A&P 1 in the fall of 2019, and then I registered for A&P 2 in the Spring of 2020. I took four other classes in Spring which included, Sociology, Philosophy, Developmental Psychology, and Spanish 1.
In fall, I had only taken two classes, Chemistry and A&P 1, so it was much easier to focus on them and spend more time on each subject.
It was a little more challenging for my spring semester since I took a total of 5 classes. So what I would do is every week use my planner and write down all the due dates. I would read the syllabus and the chapters and try to figure out what’s going to take more time to learn and what’s going to be easy.
I would start with the subject that would take me some time to grasp and then carry on with other classes. Sociology, psychology, and philosophy were mainly reading and taking quizzes, so I didn’t have to spend much time on them. I needed more time for A&P and Spanish because learning a new language wasn’t easy.
◊Always plan ahead of time and skim through the chapter before class. This will help you understand better when the professor goes over the chapter in detail.
◊Once the class is over, re-review everything and write notes. This helps retain a lot of information in the long term memory.
◊Learn to prioritize. You know yourself better than anyone else, so if you think you need more time for philosophy than A&P, then go ahead and plan your study schedule that way.
◊Tell yourself that you can do it. Readout aloud all the positive affirmations that resonate with you.
When you start believing in yourself, even the word impossible says “I-m-possible”.
