As an undergraduate, do you read any journals on a regular basis? I will spend a good 10 to 15 hours a week reading journal articles. I have signed up for the automatic electronic notice of new issues that are posted online for the journals I'm interested in. If you do read journals, what do you do to remember the information? There are times where I will read an article and 15 minutes later I ask myself what I just read. When I did that, I was a sophomore and freshman. Now that I'm a junior I have been able to overcome that with the better understanding of the material. I know that I won't be able to remember minute detail in the long run, so I have adviced a plan that keeps the information in front of me. What I do is, I save a PDF file on RefWorks with the abstract attached and when I read an article I will highlight sections of the article I want to keep and then i transfer it to a Word document. When I'm trying to learn about a specific disease or disorder, I will go to the library and get my hands on every article I can relevant to the disorder I'm reading. I then save all of the PDF files on RefWorks and then make a review paper out of the articles I read. It generaly takes me a week to put together the review paper. I then print of the review paper and put it in a small binder. I then read the review paper and it really helps to learn just how muh information there is on a disorder. I find this the best way to learn. I don't feel like I know anything if I just read one article a single disorder. I feel like I can talk like I actually know something about the disorder after writing the review article. If you read journal articles, how useful do you find them (not for class, but to learn)?
