This method is an advanced reading technique that involves creating two sets of notes, a keyword lists for self-testing and a summary for review.
How it Works:
Step 1: Preview – Skim the chapter paying special attention to summaries, bolded text, information boxes and diagrams.
Step 2: Summarize – Read the chapter again, but this time summarize the main concepts as concisely as you can.
Step 3: Create a keyword list – Now create a list of key words from the notes you’ve just made. To do this list only names, concepts and critical data points.
Step 4: Review – Read the keyword list and try to recall the information that you included in your summary.
