How to learn ?

Few insights from the edx course.

  1.  Shockingly these don’t work that well.

– Highlighting while studying

– Repeated reading non-stop

2.  Try these; they do work very good for long term memory retention

– Start early & distribute your study across 2-3 weeks when preparing for an exam

– Close a book & try to recall what you think  you understood.

               –   Link  new information with existing one in your brain . Create a web of memory.

–   Try to study in small phases instead of a whole in one go

–   Listen carefully in the class . Take notes sparingly.

–   Group discussions, ask questions

– Test yourself regularly. Simulate examination

– Use flash cards, write down summary
