    I will try to keep this short, basically I am not in formal education anymore, but I am currently studying for a certain non-academic qualification. I am essentially just using a study book and some video tutorials as my resources.. I am wondering what is the best way to learn and retain the information I am getting? it seems like such along time since I've had to study and could really do with some useful tips. My main issue is trying to stop myself writing out pages and pages from the book which essentially slows the process down.

    Just read the information and try to understand it and then condense it into revision notes. If possible try and make your notes colourful to make them easier to revise from

    Make mindmaps etc
