Many of you are now relishing your "time off" between last term and the next one.
Some of you are waiting for your A&P 2 course to start and some are getting ready for their A&P 1 course.
Simply taking time to relax and enjoy your friends and family is a good thing. It's one of the key study tips that I give my own students . . . have fun when you can!
If you've survived A&P 1, or heard from someone who has, then you know that it's also not a bad idea to start to get ready for the new semester. While you have the time, you might want to get yourself organized so that you can hit the road running when your new course starts.
One thing you can start with is learning about about your own learning style. Do you learn best by reading . . . or by listening . . . or by doing . . . . or by seeing? Knowing which strategies work best for you will help you get started on the right track when things do crank up.
How do you do that? It's easy! Just visit Learning Styles in the Lion Den section on study tips and tools. There, you'll learn how to figure out what your learning styles are and how to use that knowledge as you begin your new course.
