Outline and Rewrite Notes

I always tell my students learn how you learn.  When you figure out how you study, your school life will be so much easier!  There are so many different ways to study, and we all use different strategies.  What works for you might not work for another.  So I am going to highlight different methods.  Today I am going to highlight outlines and rewriting notes.
Some people when there is a big exam coming up reread their notes and rewrite them.  There is something about the repletion.  Students will keep rewriting their notes till they are in their head for good!  Another great tip is to read the notes out loud as you rewrite them.  What makes this great is you include your senses.  It makes the technique more powerful.
This takes time, but if you wait till the last minute it is hard to do!  So use good time management, and start studying early!
