Copy and rebind your notes

When studying for tests or exams it can be overwhelming to look through an entire course worth of notes what I like to do is help myself Focus only on what needs to be studied.

An easy way to accomplish this is take all the notes that are required to be studied for the test photocopy them and remind them into a little booklet allowing you to keep your class notes intact but having a study booklet from which to work and study from this helps you focus on only the relevant information and you’re not overwhelmed like you would be looking at your entire semester worth of notes. By binding the notes it allows you focus on the pertinent information and not be distracted by the fluff I love the cinch binding machine (affiliate)

Use highlighting effectively

From there I would like to highlight the relevant information to make it easy important details. A great way to do this is there highlighting but I always struggle to use traditional highlighters because you couldn’t change what was highlighted later(affiliate) sure you could use traditional highlighting pens but I like the thought of highlighter tape 0) better is it is removable and you can write over the tape surface.

Mind mapping

I like the thought of having all my information in one place a good way to do this would be to take the highlighted sections and turn it into a mind map. This then creates a One Stop Shop for studying.

Use index cards to make homemade flash cards

Learning specific terms can be done with flashcards put a question that’s in your study notes on the front with the answer on the back this is especially useful when the test is multiple choice or a technical base subject like science or mathematics

Final thoughts

Hang on to any of the resources you use from the above because they may come in handy for the final exam and with the highlighter tape it will all get confusing if the information slightly changes :-)

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

  1. I don’t know how accessible Medium.com is to you but that site has completely changed highlighting and commenting for me.
