    Learning Tips

    • Reading on its own is not necessarily studying. You may often need to read a section over once and then review it again purposefully looking for the key points of the section.
    • Taking notes as you read can help you to retain information as well as provide you with a shorter list of key points to study later.
    • Saying information aloud as you read it can help you remember it.
    • When reading about different related topics, it can help to draw a map of how they are related.
    • Remember not to cram all your study time together. You remember information better when you space it out over time, reviewing the information multiple times over days or weeks.
    • If you have trouble finding time to study, it can be helpful to make a schedule. Even planning out 15 minute periods where you can read or review information can help!
    • Because LibreTexts provides content as a web page, if you need to stop and pickup at a specific page later on you can just bookmark or save the web URL for that page.
