that's what she said.

You could leave a cardboard cutout of Erik Estrada at the front counter and I guarantee you no one would ever know the difference.
Not so much because you resemble Erik Estrada, more so because you have the personality of cardboard.

Don't start yet. Seriously. I think it's actually counter-productive to think about outlining until you have more of an overview of the class.

I personally am an advocate for doing your outlines yourself, from scratch, as a good way to learn the material, but a lot of people definitely disagree with me on that.

I'm the opposite.  I'm an advocate of getting outlines from the same professor for the same class from a previous student, then adding your own notes to that outline.

Worked well enough for me, I guess.
I hate science because I refuse to assume that a discipline based in large part on the continual scrapping and renewal of ideas is unconditionally correct in a given area.

And so we come 'round again to the "find what study method works best for you!" LSD mantra!
