  • I like learning things at my own pace when I like, that is why I don't enjoy cramming for an exam or anything.

  • Memorizing is boring!! I love reading and learning but have test anxiety and a horrible memory so test are difficult for me. I am getting better because I have instructors that don't use tests to trick students but use tests to help us learn.

  • I like learning new things but I am horrible at memorizing. I do awful on exams. I learn best by hands on, reading and writing papers. Doing extra credit papers is what got me through college when I would bomb the exams.

  • Memorizing is not the same as learning. If you learn the concepts, you don't need to memorize.
