I would like to share my way of setting the foundation for your study, as mentioned below:
1. First of all it is very much required to have faith in your choice of a professional course and you have to take genuine interest in the course and subjects to perform well.
2. Try and understand importance of developing analytical skills and sense of relevant study material.
3. Form a circle of good friends for discussion etc.
4. First refer Scanner to locate important chapters and topics. Scanner will give you a bird’s eye view of entire course content.
5. Mark the important chapters and topics located from scanner in the institute study material.
6. Give a sound and detailed study to institute study material and also give special reading to important chapters and topics located from scanner as mentioned in point no. 4. [Quick reading approach is explained below this post].
7. If you honestly follow point no. 6, you’ll have more than 75% exact idea of your course with good understanding of topic for exam purpose.
8. After that you can use anyone’s notes to give a final touch to your preparation.
Here comes a genuine question if you directly use point no. 8 and start using notes of different authors from the very beginning without understanding the topic, purpose then how will you achieve success and what will happen to your professional career?
QUICK READING APPROACH
First give Institute study material a quick reading to understand the depth and figure out the efforts and time required for final preparation. You would appreciate that through this quick reading you would be able to figure out where extra efforts are required to prepare a subject and plan accordingly.
Make necessary notes or put suggestions or mark strategy for yourself on the study book during first reading. This will help you to deal with the subject later on during final preparation. Pre-condition for this first study is --- go ahead for quick study with a completely relax and chilled mind. Your main purpose behind this quick study is observation and formation of a plan to deal with the subject.
During first study ride prepare a plan for final preparation. Also use scanner for making the plan. Later on use any good notes to prepare. Remember at this moment you have everything in your mind like what is imp along with basic idea of the topic and chapter.
Think about it and believe in putting good foundation of your study for long and strong performance.
