I'd really appreciate some advice from, perhaps, some 2nd years. My school has us in class from 9-5:30 EVERY day! After managing to get 68% on my 1st 2 exams (it takes 70% to pass!), I'm tired all the time, and STRUGGLE to get 4 hrs of daily study during the week. There's NO way to do the assigned reading in 4 hrs and still have time to review instructor handouts and the co-op notes IF I attend every class. We can view the lectures on-line, so my new plan is to skip lectures, actually get the reading done, use the co-op lecture notes, and possibly view lectures later in the day AFTER doing the reading. I study best in the morning and early afternoon (and, of course, when not exhausted after 10-11 hrs on campus), so it seems like a waste to go sit in lectures then. Anybody have success using the independant-learning-no-lecture approach? Please - serious responses from those who've "been there!" THanks!
