Reading in the Sciences

College Freshman

Science sometimes confuses me and I get lost trying to read all the facts. I like the idea of looking over the book before class. By looking over the book before class, it gives me knowledge that I can build from later when I'm in class.

Science is one subject that I just could learn, learn, and keep learning. Everything about it is just exciting and keeps my eyes wide open. I love to find facts and produce reports on them. This page should get anyone excited about science.

Science is a subject that I was always kind of bad at. I never really understood it. Well this article kind of gave me an idea about reading over the book before the class begins to get an idea of what you will be learning during that class. I think if I were to do that, it would let me know what kind of things I think I would understand and which things would really just be a whole lot of trouble for me.

Why didn't someone tell me?

I love science and have studied it for a long time. Over the years I have tried various methods to understand and memorize science material before finally setting upon one general method.

After reviewing this web site I have found that my preferred study method is fairly close to the one discussed in this web site. I just wish I had found it years ago. It would have saved me a lot of frustration over the years. I would recommend this method for anyone who would like to be successful in a science class.

Don't be overwhelmed by this great resource!

After reading this resource "Reading in the Sciences" I found that it had a lot of great tips! Many of the tips I use myself and I suggest to my tutoring students, however I felt that the structure was a bit overwhelming. A student who needs tips on how to read in science is already overwhelmed by the idea of learning the amount of information science classes offer, and I feel a student might be dishearted by the amount of information they see on this site.

I think a condensed version of the information would be much more effective. If you make information look smaller it will feel smaller and hopefully less stressful.
