I am finding it very hard to retain information I need to learn. I have a 900+ page book to study for an exam and I have gone through the first two chapters at least 4 times and taken the chapter review exams. I just cannot get it. It is very, very dense material (110 pages just in the first 2 chapters) and so much is covered in each chapter that by the time I get to the end, and the test, I canít remember the first part of the chapter. I just read chapter 2 and immediately took the review rest, 20 questions, and I got 5 wrong and couldnít even answer another 4 of them.
Iíve never had problems like this. I am not just reading, I write notes as I go, think of tricks to remember things but, itís not working. I feel so defeated every time I do these two chapters again, and again, that I just want to give up.
