A little bit about reading concentration from my past school days

I have some advice to offer in regards reading concentration. When I was younger I took a course in alage studies. This field is called phycology. Note that is not psychology but phycology. The course had a 300 page textbook full of latin biology terms for these little green plants that live in water. I had very poor biology marks in high school and this was a third year university course. It was offered in the summer by a retired professor. I got his permisson to study it and we used microscopes and took a tour of Quebec to visit a tidal flat. Luckily I wrote a great term paper and passed the course. I did not do well because of all the latin terms.

But for the 300 page book I forced myself to read the whole thing even if I did not understand what I was reading. This was back in the day when I was taking haldol and cogenten for side effects from the haldol. So I would say if you are young and in school force yourself to read your books.

Also study your school's rules for part-time study and try to stay in school for as many years as you can manage based on the rules.
