    Let's share our study tactics and what's best for different subjects. What "techniques" have helped you the most?
    Here's one question: When reviewing chapters- do you give yourself "deadlines" (i.e. finish this chapter in 1 hour) to keep yourself on track or do you prefer not to because you don't want to rush it?

    EDIT: either

    I just read chapters out of the textbook. The book covers everything in the course and more in detail. When it's time to look at powerpoint slides there really isn't anything to memorize because I read the chapter.

    For Bio, read the chapter. For physics/ochem, read the chapter and do problems.

    I agree with the above! I also take my own personal notes on the chapters I read before class and ask any questions I encounter
