Pharmacology Class: Tip #1

I was having the most difficult time studying for this class last night, mainly because I didn't have a routine.

After a few hours of reading and reading and not really retaining much, I found something that works: flashcards (I used 3x5 index cards.) I've found that this works well for some classes (like A&P) and not so well for others, like Freshman Composition (sometimes called Creative Writing).

But for Pharmacology, it helped me a great deal. The class already has covered a lot of terms I'm not familiar with, and there is something about flashcards that really makes it easier to commit the information to memory. I flipped through the cards once last night (not knowing the information prior to doing this), and I remembered all the terms this morning when I looked at the cards again.

I'm not saying it will work for you, but it has worked for me, so I thought I'd pass it on.
