Making study notes

Creating study notes, as you revise, can be helpful for a number of reasons:
  • to highlight important information
  • to focus the mind as you read
  • to have something to read immediately before your exam
  • to allow someone else to test you

Creating flash cards is easy.  If you don't have cards, just cut a piece of paper up into six equal pieces (like power point slides).  Use your flash cards to record important definitions, key points and lists.

Remember, flash cards don't need to include ALL of the information in your text book.  Use keywords that will trigger the information that you need to remember.

You can type or handwrite your cards - handwriting has the benefit of allowing you to add illustrations, to highlight points, to write in different colour pens - anything that helps you to remember!
