Turn the LOs into a set of general questions that the lecture's going to answer.

Bryan Sepulveda

Import the lectures into my note taking app and create the "notebooks" for that day.

Mike

Download lecture on ipad. Think about what I think the main topics of the lecture are, and look up any terms I do not understand. Try to recall if any of the material has been previously presented to us.

Books

I like to read the relevant chapters in the textbooks the day before the lecture just to get the gist of the material that will be presented. I have used BRS books, recommended text books, Dr. Meisenberg's text book or in some cases, handouts provided by the department.

Parth

Briefly skim through the lecture without attempting to learn/memorize anything. If the lecturer has added starred slides, it will indicate what they want us to focus on/get out of the lecture. Recognize the familiar concepts/terms to form a basic outline in your brain about what the complexity of lecture might entail. Avoid forming preconceived notions about the difficulty of the lecture. Go in with an open mind and be ready to learn something new the next day!

I look at First Aid to find out the key points about what's going to be covered.

:)

Watch YouTube/Doctors in Training/Pathoma/Khan Academy videos that cover the learning objectives

Coll

read the recommended reading before the lecture (if difficult)

3

Flash Cards

Read through the material, on the front of the flashcard write detailed questions about the slides which can be grouped to decrease number. Then on the back paste the entire slide, that way the pertinent information is known, while the ability to see the entire slide and obtain the "nit picky" information is available as well.

Dr. Najeeb

I like to use Dr. Najeeb's videos to preview. His videos on Immunology and Embryology were extremely helpful as a preview resource.
