We have had three actual lectures and now an exam on Monday. Probably the most material I’ve ever seen at one time in my entire life is going to be on this exam, and I’m not sure how to handle this. I’m doing my best to stay on target but I think I’m falling behind, and for the first time this year I can’t see the light at the end of the material. I know I’m not ready to go into this exam in 4 days. My plan at the moment is to spend all day on Friday catching up on my flash cards and then at least 10 hours a day Saturday and Sunday reviewing. I’m definitely feeling overwhelmed, but I shall keep pushing. I know with God all things are possible.
With that said, I cannot pretend that I was not warned about the terrors of CaTOS. Many people told me that it was the worst class of first year, but I am finding that I actually enjoy the material. I just cannot seem to figure out the proper way to organize it all to place it in the lovely file cabinets residing in my head. At first, I was doing okay with just my flashcards, but I am thinking that playing with the old trusty whiteboard may help me a little more. Study groups are also essential to passing this class because there is no way that one person can do this alone. This is shaping out to be a little more than I expected!
