    handouts

    Advertisements



    Hi guys, I am starting out with my first sem at the moment and am little confused about the handouts. When and where to pick them up for each course? How important are they? Are they an outline of the material or details we need to know? Do we pick one up for every lecture or does it cover a bunch of lectures? and if its available on g drive all the time?
    If you aint got it in your genes, sweat it out.

    They should provide them around the time of the lecture, provided the copy center isn't backed up. How useful the notes are and how many lectures they cover depends on the professor. The notes are usually always available on the G drive.
    Then again, I like to think of anything stupid I've done as a "learning experience." It makes me feel less stupid. PJ O'Rourke.

    Packets are picked up at the department offices. Anything on the packets are testable material. For most subjects the handouts are the powerpoint the prof will be presenting. For embryo and physio it is in text form so they will be more of a read. They basically save you time and credit for printing.

    From what my neighbor told me biochem handouts are ready. you go to the dept and pick up the entire stack (for the whole semester apparently) just sign your name. however, the anatomy dept is no longer providing handouts and you need to print those up yourself, at least thats what the email said.

    If packets/handouts are available to be picked up, they will send out an email with the time and place. No need to get worried about it.

    btw, from this semester on there will be no handouts from the histology department. They are trying to save money so will ask the students to print the handouts themselves.

    awaits someone's response on whether students should stick more to the handouts and read only the text when clearification on a topic is needed.

    It's really up to you how you want to study. Some people only read packets, some people only read books. Most people fall somewhere in between - you have to figure out where that is for you.

    If you know the material presented in class, you will get an A. Some professors' handouts are great and you can just use the handouts. Some of the handouts leave a little to be desired. Some of the professors aren't very articulate about what they are trying to present and therefore a book might be necessary to understand what they are trying to exaplin.

    Personally, I take my own notes on my laptop (ends up being about 1 1/2 to 2 pages per 1 hr of lecture). I find it much easier to go through 15-20 pages of notes for each subject per mini than 200-300 slides per subject for each mini. Plus, when it comes time to the final, that's a llllotttt of slides to go through.....
