Tips for Taking Our Online Registry Review Courses
Our online registry review courses have been carefully designed to present information in a logical and easy-to-understand format. That being said, time is a commodity that is in short supply. Many don’t have endless amounts of time to spend studying. So what can help?
Here are some tips to help you get the most out of the course:
- Set specific goals for each study session – What does this mean? Each study session should accomplish something – not just reading notes. For example, watch one video and take notes. Another goal could be to learn 3 or 4 vocabulary words. Working on some anatomy? Take one section of the body or system you are studying and know it well. Focusing a study period to accomplish something (even if it seems small) will yield the best results.
- Be exact – Very often, reading through material or notes won’t help with testing as much as knowing specific and exact information. This is especially important when it comes to vocabulary, relationships, and testing parameters. For example, let’s take the word frequency. What is the definition? Do you have a general idea? That’s a good start, but it may not help with test questions. Is frequency the number of pulses per second? The number of pulses per scan line? The number of cycles per second? Or the length of one cycle? Having the precise definition will keep you from being confused when reading through options and make you more confident when answering questions.
- Set a good pace for yourself – Rushing through a course with the goal of completing it quickly may not end with the result you want. After watching a video, time should be taken to review, study (using the tips we just discussed), and then take the quiz.
What if You Get Stuck on a Lesson?
Pop quiz time: What happens if you don’t pass a quiz the first time around? Should you
(A) Retake it immediately to correct your wrong answers
(B) Study a little more to make sure you really know the material before moving on?
The answer is B. Failing a quiz means there is room for improvement, and more study is needed before moving on.
What if you pass the quiz? You can move on to the next portion of the course!
