Have you ever tried to take an online course from another accredited institution, and have failed miserably? You probably did not pass, because you did not spend enough time studying the subject matter! Many people do not take the time to get good preparation for their course. Study with other ACIM students can help you improve your chances of passing your course and even challenge you to get better grades! This will allow you to move on towards your degree in Health Administration and perhaps pursue a PhD if you wish!
The first thing you should do when you are preparing for an online ACIM class is to learn all you can about the course. You can find out what topics will be covered, when they will be covered, and how they will be covered. You can also learn about any new terms that may be used in class. When you first start the class, make sure that you take notes every night, and then write a summary of the night’s sessions on your night pad. When class is finally over, review your summary.
When you first try out a course, you need to try to familiarize yourself with all the topics a course in miracles podcast. Spend a little time each day trying to figure out everything you know about the course, and try to use the definitions and strategies that you have learned from reading other students work. Spend at least one class period studying for a diagnostic test that is given at the end of each class. This will help you know which questions you have already been tested on, and you will be able to review the material for the final examination.
Once you have had enough practice in class, try to arrange a regular schedule of time for yourself to study. If you cannot afford to commit to study at the same time each day, set up a set time each day to read, listen to lectures, and complete assignments. Try to study in a quiet environment where you will not be distracted by the classroom noise. You may also want to ask a friend or family member to be there with you to observe any test you take.
Communication between students is important in any class and is even more important when class discussion takes place during testing time. It is up to you to keep the classmates who are listening to you engaged in the conversation. Even if you don’t think that you are the best person for the job, try to show that you are interested in the topic. Communication skills can be taught over the course of many classes.
Finally, do your best to relax during class. If you become nervous, your grades suffer. Try to stay calm and make eye contact with each other. Even if you do not feel comfortable, express your opinions, and try to engage your classmates in a conversation. By taking the above steps, you will find that class discussions are far more successful when you are yourself a confident student.
