Ten Rules for Good Studying
1. Use recall. After you read a page, look away and recall the main ideas. Highlight very little, and never highlight anything you haven't put in your mind first by recalling. Try recalling main ideas when you are walking to class or in a different room from where you originally learned it. An ability to recall-to generate the ideas from inside yourself-is one of the key indicators of good learning.
