Hi! Does anyone out there use mind maps to study? I was just wondering, as I'm thinking of trying them out when I embark on my degree in October. I've read all the Tony Buzan material- I just never got started in actually trying them!!
Well... if it makes studying easier!!!!

No. But is it complicated? I heard it being recommended for people with dyspraxia ( a learning difficulty) and such like. Does it work?

No, I never did, so much wasted time colouring in....

I tended to just copy out my notes, making them shorter each time, and they just sank in

Actually I did for the final biology exam last year. This was after I had revised everything. All the information was in my head, but it was in a jumble, so the minds maps helped me put the stuff into something that I could see clearly in my brain. I'm a visual learner so it did indeed help.

funny you should post this....

We were taught mind maps in year 8, and I thought there were a complete waste of time. Then just last week (now in upper 6thform) I did a complete mind map for my transport economics revision.

Are they any good? Ill tell you when I get my results

I tried them for some of my GCSE things, but they didn't really work - too convoluted for me. I know all the crap about how only 10% of your memory is for linear information and stuff, but that's the way I learn things best!

I also have a ridiculous number of mnemonics to help me learn anatomy - Some Couples Try Positions That They Can't Handle, and various ones like that (a prize for anyone who can tell me what that one is a mnemonic for!)

Hello ...
I dont use mind map pictures because i don't understand it very well ...
I find beautiful but without meaning.
I use an alternative technique that gives me very good results.
This technique is "Mind Graph" and it seems to be that it is good to solve problems in an effective way and it is no necessary to use loud colors.
