Question How do you study using video lectures???

Do you read the chapter first yourself and then watch the video lectures and follow along and then go back and review before moving on? (super time consuming) what do you do??

Everyone has their own way of doing this. Some dont even watch the lectures. You will have to figure out wart works the best for you. Generally what i would recommend is read the notes on your own and try to understand the concepts by urself rather than being spoonfed by lectures. After you finish a chapter u can watch the videos to add notes or correct anything u got wrong.

Well, I opened the lecture notes alongside while viewing the videos and annotated them, wherever necessary and wherever I needed time to just think or understand a concept, I paused the video, read that part thoroughly and then moved on.

Default That's a good way

The better thing to do is, get your latest first aid and annotate them in that book. Imagine when you are at the end of your preparation close to the test would you really take time to open each book for reference? It's time consuming. First aid is made in such a way that all the subjects are compressed in a book and lot's of free space is left out for the students to annotate for their preparation.
