I did very well. Read the ppt lecture the morning of class. Go to class and listen, try and actively memorize, not necessarily take notes. Record the lecture! The same day later, relisten to the lecture and take notes on a Word doc. Guaranteed success.
Thanks for the replies! I'm asking because I'm kind of at a loss for what to do. My major does not require cell bio, but I've heard how cell bio is useful for the mcat. But cell bio at my school is also notoriously hard and I don't want to risk hurting my gpa. Are there any suggestions for what I should do? Do you think cell bio for the mcat will be easy to study on my own? I'm sure the class will offer more details than necessary for the mcat.
I aced cell biology, my strategy was sir through lecture and then listen to recording after class, use that time to take very detailed notes.review this before exam and do practice problems if provided
