how you study?
 | 
United States bigbrainamerican69 
How do you guys study (for those of you currently attending a university)? For a note-heavy class, do you simply review notes? Or do you outline key concepts, write about it? I have 4 exams over the next 3 days and I'm quite worried about 2 of them. The two most difficult lectures I have are for my policing class, and my theories of criminal behavior class. You would think the topics wouldn't be terribly difficult, but man trust me they are. I'm also worried about getting in to a internship with Federal Law Enforcement. Any law enforcement bros out there with any advice? tl;dr how do you study for a class that's largely lecture-based?

at my school we have alot of info available online aswell, most of the things teacher gives in lecture is on our ''school website''
2019-09-18 18:01
i wish this was the case with my theories of criminal behavior class, my professor doesn't post anything on our website. it's strange because he's such a cool and relaxing professor

maybe you should ask him to sendt it to you otherwise I just point out important stuff writing everything down is kinda impossible if you ask me
2019-09-18 18:04
i take good notes (i think), i've done well on most of the quizzes that we've taken so far. i just hope the exam tomorrow isn't horrible.

What’s point in going to school then ?
2019-09-18 18:03
school should be about learning, not regurgitating information on an exam honestly.

our profs had scripts about 400-800 pages. never attended any lectures. 1 week before exams i would read those scripts. was easy for me, i have high IQ.
2019-09-18 18:03
1 week? lol what a amateur. what about the night before? much better.
2019-09-18 18:06
lol i never review a week before
2019-09-18 18:07
i studied economy. some theories and models arent easy to pick up fast. i couldnt go through 600 pages in a night and understand everything. have to say i had good grades. maybe its a thing in the US? im sure swedish universities are harder. americans = low iq.
2019-09-18 18:08
studied economy but still cant know if the other team is on eco or buy LOL
2019-09-18 18:09
you never know in lvl 5
2019-09-18 18:09
yeah, i go to class mainly because i'm paying for it so may as well
2019-09-18 18:06
Well that explains a lot
2019-09-18 21:44
1. Read my notes/ the script 2. Try to solve exams from the last years (most are given from my uni, some you can buy from older students) 3. Read the parts of the script/notes that I struggle with Repeat until I feel good about it
2019-09-18 18:04
yeah, i'll have to outline all of the chapters that we read for my behaviors class, it's really weird. the guy expects us to memorize a lot of the information and if it isn't verbatim definition that he wanted, ur kinda fucked
2019-09-18 18:05
Luckily for me, I never had problems with memorizing stuff. I always had more problems at solving practical tasks instead of just repeating theoretical knowledge
2019-09-18 18:08
yeah it's just the terminology that gets to me, memorizing that can be a lil difficult

last years exams + info from those who took the class, use other students notes, slides and research on your own if you are not confident you can talk about something
2019-09-18 18:05
true, the problem is criminal and police studies here is kind of a smaller major so i don't know a ton of kids who've taken the course

I always pull allnighters during the exam period, cuz i play games all day and start studying at like 11 pm xD
2019-09-18 18:11
hahaha, i can't really stay up super late, i'm bad at studying super late
2019-09-18 18:13
Assuming you aren't in the process of acquiring a useless degree there will be practice problems. Do them.
2019-09-18 18:07
not a math major, it's mostly criminal study. not a useless degree though because I want to be a cop d:^)
2019-09-18 18:08
It doesn't have to be a maths problem. Whats the content of criminal study?
2019-09-18 18:09
largely criminal behavior and deviance studies, i'm in the process of doing statistical studies on chicago gangs, how effective the use of community patrol policing, stop and frisk, etc.
2019-09-18 18:10
I see, I probably wont be able to help you then, I'm in a completely different field
2019-09-18 18:12
it's fine man! i'm on hltv anyways so it's clear i'm not studying lol
2019-09-18 18:12
But hold on, do you not have any questions/problems at the end of (chapters in) literature you use to study?
2019-09-18 18:13
i'll have to re-go through it, it's largely just a lot of study terms to memorize
2019-09-18 18:14
I read Wikipedia and other sites etc and the notes I've made. I do quizzes if there are any and if there are none I make quizzes myself and test my abilities.
2019-09-18 18:09
i cheat
2019-09-18 18:09
i dont stop reading until i memorize everything.

Tbh I just do exams from past years if it's something practical, and then I memorize the theory I need to know for some exercises. If it's something like law, just gotta memorize shit. My notes are usually just exercices we do in class about certain parts of a unit, so I don't usually look them unless I need to know how to do something very specific.
2019-09-18 18:12
yeah. i'm in the process of getting a degree in Russian language studies and criminal theories studies. it's difficult but really gratifying and fun work.

2019-09-18 18:15
Lol I got exam for Dynamics of Machines tomorrow its a huge subject with a heck lot of formulaes and heck lot of theory to back it up and I am wasting my time here on HLTV though that is my favourite subject and I m pretty good in it so I will pull it off somehow but cant say the same about Friday's I.C. Engines paper I am dead scared of that subject
2019-09-18 18:21
yeah that sounds tough
2019-09-18 21:42
I pulled off Dynamics of Machines with flying colours got a perfect 30/30 but still dead scared of I.C. Engines

Memorise the entire thing
2019-09-18 21:44
leave it till last minute and then read through everything so I have less time to forget
2019-09-18 21:45
At University, when I got a theoretical class: Reread notes/script/etc, then summarize, then reread and redo exercises, old tests When "logic" class like maths, statistics, etc: Start doing old easy exercises/Homework, if I can't do them watch videos, reread script, read books or work with notes and solution, when I can solve them all do old tests, work on my small mistakes I still gotta fix short term But not really for your case, I usually start 1 1/2 months before the exam, uni isnt anything like school
