I have a concern. It takes me about three review cycles over my lecture notes to be "exam ready". The problem is that I don't have time to review my lecture slides that many times because there's so much information being thrown at us. I only have time to review lectures once, maybe twice before the exam. And for my brain that isn't enough time to memorize enough information to get a good grade. For example in anatomy I am falling behind because even though I only review each lecture once, I'm only retaining ~50% of the information because I don't have enough time to do more reviews of my notes. I know some students who have such a good memory that they don't need to glance over the notes very many times because it just sticks for them.
