When it comes to Science courses, my strengths include being detailed oriented, being well organized with assignments and notes, having a photographic memory that easily recalls information once studied, and putting in a great amount of effort because I have a true love for science. However, I am not perfect and I have weaknesses well, which include not always asking for help when I need it, getting hard on myself for not doing well/understanding a certain concept, and waiting for the last couple of days before a test to study. When preparing/studying for an exam, I have a routine that I typically follow.
