Frierson, Henry T., Jr.; Munro, Molly
This manual covers study behavior and attitudes and specific study techniques for health profession students, including scheduling, comprehension, memory, and test-taking techniques. Much of the approach emphasizes self-discipline and honesty. Focus is on how students in a health professions program can make their study time more productive and efficient. Learning behavior and habits, daily study practices, class preparation and note taking, comprehension skills, and self-assessment skills are discussed. Techniques outlined include reward systems, reading and other pre-lecture preparation activities, after-lecture reviews, maintenance of concentration, retention of information, use of imagery and conceptual frameworks, learning support groups, formulation of study questions and answers, paraphrasing reading material, building mental networks, understanding terminology, and practice examinations.
