    Unhappy Need serious solid advice fast

    Long story short I have to read 8 textbooks in 3 days. The textbooks are a little bigger than A5, about 170 pages at average. I know know a few topics in these books, the rest is new to me.

    I need some advice to study everything, or almost everything, in the limited amount of time that I have. Are there any techniques that you know of that I can use to quickly get through these books and also retain most of the information for the next half a month?

    I have really important exams coming up I and really regret wasting all the time I had procrastinating (5 months).

    Any help will be appreciated, but please be it soon.

    Thanks in advance

    Advice is to not procrastinate this heavily again.

    Realistically there's no way you can retain all the information of 8 different textbooks, and I'm assuming they're all for different subjects, so there's just no way. The books probably have chapter highlights/significance of each chapter and I'd recommend reading those, taking notes and doing your best to retain the MOST IMPORTANT information.

    I'd say you're pretty much screwed. Even though you might be able to read all 3 textbooks entirely within 3 days, the information you will retain would be minimal (because you'll be overloaded). I'm guessing this is for an exam/test. So the best option here would be to look at past year questions and answer them. If you don't know the answer, go research the answer (not look up the answer on the answer sheet). This way you will at least remember some things.

    This happened to my buddy, he was taking med school, anyway, he just looked over a bit of it and took what he remembered from class and winged it, he passed. IF you payed any attention in class you'll do fine, your just stressing.

    I just want to know why the fuck you have to read 8 textbooks In 3 days.
    You really screwed yourself by not starting reading them earlier
