  16. Note-taking styles • Outline • Asymmetrical columns • Compare-contrast • Concept maps concept

  17. Strategic studying • Location • Focus • Set goals

  18. Memory skills • Memory skills • Registration • Reception – taking in • Perception – recognition • Selection - remembering • Short term – 5 to 9 chunks • Long term – organize & store • Recall & use!
