Reading but not understanding
For some students, their trouble spot arises early on in the study process. They sit down at the desk, pull out the books, but dont make sure they understand what theyre studying.
Whether youre reading, writing study notes, or making diagrams, it is ESSENTIAL that you are studying in such a way that ensures the information isnt just going in, but is staying in.
If youre just going through the motions when you study, then its highly unlikely that youre going to be able to retain any of that information.
