Need advice... I just started the program yesterday and am wondering if my old study habits are not functional for this line of studying. Let me explain...:

This is how I have studied thus far during my undergrad, I read the chapter while physically writing an extensive summary on a legal pad. It takes very long to go through 1 chapter this way. When its time to study for an exam, I dont bother with the book and just read my summaries for each and every chapter assigned. This is very time consuming. Now here I am... 6 classes this 1st term and im thinking this just might not fly. What do you suggest? What did you do? Open to any suggestions.
