I don’t know how I’ll do on the final written exam and practical. I’m not at all worried about the written exam – it is only for the class grade, and mine being high, I don’t have to worry about this.
I never seem to learn what I’m supposed to learn. My taking this class has lent itself to an exploration of my study habits; in fact, more so than most. I noted that four of us had to retake the final class practical, two others were female, and one was male. The male, who is in my group, I think like me, got mired in detail. So I am preparing for the practical by in part strategizing. I’m going to read parts of Amy Cuddy’s book called Presence on Friday and Saturday morning. I’m also going to avoid stress by waiting to go into the class on Saturday until the very last minute. And, I’m going to take advantage of my having two minutes before I have to “preform,” and I’m going to make outline notes, which I will have on hand when I do the individual tasks. Furthermore, I’ll have a clipboard on hand in which I’ll write down the needed medical information that is for that scenario. And I’ll have a notebook with written notes in it for the more rote tasks. I am curious to see how this works out for me.
As for the written exam – I decided not to spend time exclusively going over test questions. Instead, I’m going over the question/answer case studies. I am curious to see how this works out for me.
It’s all one big experiment. My head can be likened to a pinata – the contents will soon be spilled on the floor.
Yep, I am healthy and upbeat. This is an instance of mind over matter.
