My Chemistry 1A class last semester is one example. At the start of the semester, I did not understand the materials or the problems. I was confused when I read and tried to solve problems. Even though I did the homework and went to all the laboratory sessions, my understanding did not seem to improve. In fact, on my first and second tests, I received a D and an F. After receiving those two grades, I started to realize that I had to change the way I was studying. I decided to put myself on a strict schedule and to go to the library every day after dinner. I continued to follow this plan until the end of the semester. Even now, I still cannot believe how well I did on my final. I received a B on the final and a C for the semester. This is what I think happened: When I reviewed all the materials systematically, I was able to understand principles of chemistry that I did not understand before.
