Too much to learn—too little time! Nothing characterizes the medical school experience better than this expression, and it is the reason that Eugenia G. Kelman and Kathleen C. Straker developed this book. A product of their 25 years' experience, the book draws from the authors' many study skills and stress management workshops for medical students. Written in an easy-to-read conversational style, Study Without Stress contains the keys to medical school academic survival, enabling you to manage your time and develop optimal study habits.
Designed to be read either straight through or by section, this volume of the Medical School Survival Kit provides self-assessment tools for measuring your current study habits and numerous strategies for improving them. The authors discuss effective time management and ways to help you control and use your time effectively. Also included are chapters on prereading, reading, note-taking, concentration, test-taking skills, and overcoming test-induced anxiety.
Written for medical students, Study Without Stress, presents self-diagnostic tools and strategies that can be applied by students of the health and human service disciplines. It is a must for students enlisted in rigorous study and an excellent resource for student counselors.
