SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Okay, so I'm in grad school and all the work is kicking my ass. Clinical work, research, and courses in particular. I'm in a particularly tough program, where there is a lot of required reading, lots of books and of course there are also plenty of articles that I have to read (and summarize/memorize) for various courses each week. Thankfully most of the articles are in pdf format and take up no physical space like books do, so I can trick myself into thinking this is not so bad. Long story short, I have come to realize that my old study habits are not good enough. Anybody here would be so kind as to either share some tried and true method or recommend comprehensive books/articles that you deem helpful? I think I need help in all areas, time management, motivation, improved/active reading and retention, mnemonics, concentration, etc. Well, thank you. Now on to reading seven long articles packed with graphs and formulas, for Tuesday and my course in clinical assessment. Yaaaaaay!
