“One Learns to Be a Student by Being a Student”
“What should I study”? “What should I know”? These are two common questions that originate from students taking Biology 41. One of the skills that one should learn during the first two years in college is to distinguish between information that is important and information that is less important. After all, one cannot learn everything, so study sessions tend to be prioritized according to what one expects to find on the upcoming exams. Unfortunately, testing as the means of evaluating students has led to such consequences. However, one should try to study for life and not the short-term benefit of a good grade on the latest test.
