What if I am on top of my reading, but feel clueless about some of the material?
- Go through your class notes and try to determine what specific questions you have about the course.
- Write down your questions and where the reference is in your notes/casebook so that you can find the spot quickly if you need to refer back to it.
- Read a study aid to gain more understanding about the specific topic.
- Some learners clear up their confusion by outlining the material. By “pulling it together” for inclusion in an outline, the material is no longer abstract or confusing.
- If you still have questions, ask for help from your classmates or your professor.
- The more specific you can be about your questions, the easier it will be for someone to help you.
- Have your class notes/casebook with you when you ask for help so that you can show the person the material that is confusing you.
