I'm screwed. I've spent all my time reading and note-taking, often not even remembering the very notes I'm taking down each evening.
I have not read any supplements.
I have been, due to my chosen "method", outlining everything I read. But I might not even understand what I've been writing down (ie it might be better to just re-read than to read my corrupted notes/outlines)
I feel like, despite all the actual reading, I've learnt nothing. I have yet to really feel comfortable with basic definitions, and all the classes bore the hell out of me to varying degrees.
I am just aiming for "OK" grades this time around. So please let me know which barebones supplements should help me, with my notes, get into "you know this shit well enough" territory? I really just want to feel comfortable with the basic ideas, and get most of the way there. MANY THANKS
I've felt similarly at various points in the semester.
I think part of my problem is I compare my sum total of knowledge against the entire class' sum total of knowledge. When someone knows something I don't, I take it a little hard, and it motivates me to work harder. But think about it... people raise their hands in class when they know answers... that doesn't mean they know the answer to everything. (altho i'm sure there are some really smart, hard workers who know a ton). We're comparing our knowledge against the collective knowledge of the class.
Point is, I bet a lot of the class feels the same as you.
