22 October 8 advantages to go to class
IT HOPES! You do not go away of the blog. Give an opportunity to this article and soon you decide. If it is not by me, do it by Cal Newport, expert in study techniques and a fierce defender of the attendance to classes ð you have the connection to its blog Here.
In many Medicine classes, when list does not go, many students fall in the temptation to lack. This happens mainly in the clinical years.
The reasons (as you call it) are varied:
- the professor is boring
- he is too early
- I arrive by far dream and I do not find out to me don't mention it
- I already have the summaries of academies MIR
If you decide not to go to class, assure to you that it is for a good reason (we spoke of it in this article).
I am going to give 8 reasons you important not to lack to class except for unforeseen expenses (disease, etc). It agrees to you to go to class and it will facilitate the later study to you. It is on the awares well:
1. It is a faster form to understand a subject because you are in silence and concentrate under the glance of the professor and surrounded by other quiet students and concentrates.
2. Normally hourly of lost class it is translated in 2-4 hours of time inverted in obtaining the ideas nails of a book or tocho (the tochos so are worked that they are not summarized). Why? Because in the book or tocho there is no emphasis when speaking; there are no subtle signals that this or that one usually it falls in the examinations. There is no summary. There are references to articles. There is complementary information that you do not need to know in one first reading (and probably either for the examination). In a class the professor always summarizes, does not have more remedy. That summary that you extract already of a class is a pile of advanced work.
3. The professors usually signal more or less subtle of what parts of the material are more useful or must be known (that is to say, parts that will fall in the examination). They even can offer examples of questions of examination of other years!
4. Cal Newport (the author of the blog study hacks) emphasizes something important: if lack to a class by laziness, or because you do not want to rise early, you run the risk of taking it as a habit. You will have to spend too much energy in overcoming it. Better it creates habits that favor to you at the time of studying.
5. It is your profession. The fact to deliver the attack to go to the classroom is tonificante for your discipline. If the professor is bad or you already know the presented subject, Cal Newport recommends to use that class to review other things, since a full classroom of students concentrates is a good site to study. I suggest take to the book or the notes to you of reference of the subject and am marking or emphasizing envelope they according to speech the professor.
If you have curiosity to know more advice Cal Newport, you can throw a look to some of his books. This of underneath these lines I have liked much.
6. If the professor knows you the classes and of the hours of position of a guardian, at the time of describing your examination, will grant the benefit to you of the doubt (in case you need a little to approve or to raise of note). However, that knows you because you take care of its chat. You do not use his class to chat with a friend to the back of the classroom, by God¦
7. Not always it is enough with the manual of academy MIR. Some are excellent and contain great part of the information that you need for the subject. Others are insufficient, if this subject as soon as it has questions in the MIR. So that assure to you that a certain manual MIR is used for that subject before using it as text bases.
8. Either I know, or I know¦ Always there is some companion who does not go to class and removes best notes with studying the notes by his account. In fact, in an occasion it came to see a student me of the past year that all the classes needed, but removed 10 in the examination¦ Good, always it will have superequipped or great memory in your course. This student in particular started up a series of techniques that allowed to remove the maximum benefit him to their hours from study (already we will be speaking of them in the blog). But assure to you that you also will be able to do it thus, or more is worth to you to attend class and to discover what it works to you.
