This was totally me. First semester I went to every class, took notes, listened intently, read hornbooks studied my ass off for the "exam." Straight B+'s in everything on a 3.0 curve.
After that I stopped all that shit. I never was an auditory learner anyway, would go to class but zone out and cruise the internet the whole time, never took notes, did not listen to the prof, never took a practice test ect.
All i did was read the book, Google stuff, check real "hornbooks" and try to internalize the material, understand it, not memorize it, learn it as if I was going to practice it rather than for spitting out on an exam.
From that point on tons of A's a few highest grades in the class and graduated 13th. Hell I did not even read the admin law book except the 2 page summery at the end of each chapter and took the highest grade.
I dunno, for me it was just figuring out how I learned BEST and doing what worked for me and not caring about if I was doing it the "right" or the wrong way as opposed to everyone else in my class.
Once I figured that out, everything fell into place.
