Myth 6

 
The TRUTH? You are not alone!
 
Large lecture classes can be taught very quickly and sometimes students hesitate to raise their hands or speak up if they have questions. If you missed something during the lecture or feel lost, chances are you're not the only one. Don't let fear of speaking up in a large group or fear of asking a “silly” question stop you from getting the answers you need to understand the material. 
 
If your classes offer discussions (even if they are optional), you should try making the best use of them. Some of your questions may come up during disucssion, andy you may feel more comfrotable asking your question during a discussion than in a large lecture class.
 
Another great strategy to master the content is to form a study group. Study groups are a great way to make the best use of the study time (but only if you stay on task!) and gain confidence in your own learning ability. In your group you'll find you're not the only one who has questions, and there may be students in your group who can explain the material.
