Hi, any advice on how to study better and more efficient?
I currently make notes on my powerpoint slides and read them out loud for an exam. Is this enough? Can I do something else to step up my game?

It depends personally for me. If I have a lecture that consists of 30 slides or more I will write notes printed copy in the lecture and then when I get home I will replay the panopto recording and add any information I have missed on top of doing extra reading from books and journal articles (only do this if you fully understand the lecture otherwise it will become more confusing). If less than 30 slides I will rewrite the lectures on paper with different colours such as terminology will be one colour and extra reading will be a different colour (re listening to the lecture recording). Plus if on a slide there isn't much information which I have realised for biological mechanisms I will read the core textbook that my university recommended and bullet point as well as draw out the mechanism. Also put sticky notes around the room for the information and definitions you struggle to remember. Reading aloud is a good thing, I should do that but I am embarrassed of my own voice when on my own. Mindmaps also help
