    Recite:

  • Summarize in your own words what you have read.

  • Write down in your own words what you have read using the notes you have taken.

  • Underline or highlight important points.

    Review:

  • Look over notes at the end of each study session.

  • Make a study sheet or a practice test for content covered in that section.

  • Make flash cards or other memory aids.


Memory Aids

  • Flash Cards for vocabulary, facts, lists.

  • Acronyms-using the first letter of the words you want to remember to make up a silly sentence like “My very elegant mother juggled seven ugly neckties.” (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune).

  • Chunking (grouping items for better recall, especially numbers).

  • Visualization-creating pictures in your mind or on paper.

  • Look for easy logical connections- Homer wrote the Odyssey, “Homer is an Odd name”.
