Hi everyone- I am wondering if there is a way to read and actually remember the info. Most of the time I find myself not retaining much. Does anyone have a special way of reading so you can remember what you've read?
I read section by section and ask myself, did I understand what I just read. Then that same section, I write notes in my own words about what I read and any bold words and definitions that were in the section. Then I continue on to the next section and repeat. Oh I also find that reading out loud helps retain and understand better. I know that's a lot but learning 2 chapters a week, you need to remember everything. That is what works for me. I also record the lectures in class. When I take notes in class, I really only write the words or whatever my teacher stresses. Then I go and make sure i know it word for word. Not writing in class helps me understand what she's lecturing about. I hope this helps.
