Tips for selecting key words
Tips For Selecting Key Words

  • Key words should be as short as possible – a single word or a 3 to 4 word phrase at most

  • If you have difficulty remembering a term, make that your key word.

  • Use dates.

  • When you select a key word, form a visual of the key.

  • Always select your own key words – don’t borrow from others as you will have difficulty remember them

  • If a key word does not jog a memory of your notes, change it.

  • Use simple drawings instead of words.
