This is more directed at self-studiers than those who are taking a course, but even those who are in a course probably do some studying on their own.

When you're reading through the prep books, do you take notes of important details or do you just learn the general concepts?

Do you find that highlighting + reading through the chapters works better?

How does your study strategy for this test differ from your study strategy for your typical undergrad course?

I read through the chapters ect.... taking notes on weaknesses, and write important formulas down. (not derivations..... ehhmm KAPLAN). Then move on to another chapter. Then take online quizzes/ full lengths. I am in a course and some days I feel like I get something out of it, other days I wish I would have stayed home and studied. :cool:

Eat, sleep and drink the book. Do not change your study habits that got you through all those years of schooling. That is the main problem, do what works best for you.
