Individual Studying

Slide4PDF readers (software that converts text to audio) usually fail for advanced STEM materials because of the equation density in the texts, particularly in physical and quantum chemistry. If you are going to keep up with your classmates, you need to have all class materials recorded in advance and organized in such a way that you can easily access what you need.

When fellow students were given a topic or a reading assignment, having a “library” of recordings allowed me to commence studying immediately, regardless of whether a reader was available. Recorded materials were critical in allowing me to study the absence of readers, who generally are unavailable from 10pm to 7am.
