Just wondering about other people's methods of studying. I usually write a lot of notes in my coursebook and practice past papers/ write a lot of summary pages. I like to summarize things because usually there isn't much time to go through everything before the exam. I also tend to highlight a lot which I am not sure is a good thing haha... my highlighters are always running out :awesome:
How about you?

same thing minus the highlighters. i find if i highlight texts i don't remember them compared to just rewriting the notes myself. i tend to over highlight otherwise, which defeats the purpose of drawing attention the key info

Mine is slightly different to most people. I memorize everything we need to know using a condensed revision guide such as CGP. I don't necessarily memorize everything in the sense that I can repeat the whole book off by heart, but rather in a piecemeal fashion so that I am able to repeat each part by heart immediately after I memorize it. I found that this is the best way of ensuring you understand the material: If I don't understand it it's literally impossible for me to memorize it without taking hours. If I understand it it usually takes only a few minutes to memorize word for word. This works for me but I would recommend people to try it.

I'm done with it for now. It was hell of a hectic task dealing with 'em all these years. But I'm studying finance right now. I mean not really a school but undertaking online courses from the Bluebook Academy. So much more relaxing than running with pens & papers!

Read the material, then do practice questions on the topic.

Pomodoro always!

I make sure I use mellow colours (e.g. use mildliners for highlighting and those neat Bic four-colour pink/green/blue/purple pens for key words ) so my eyes don't melt when I read back through. I only ever write the smallest amount of info I can to make sure I know what's needed for the topic, so I usually use revision guides for notes if I can! Makes it all pretty neat to study from.

I love using colours, helps me notice key things a lot more, fine liners, coloured ballpoint pens you name it.
I'm in university so after lectures I go to a recommend text, read and do extra notes and make a list of stuff I really don't understand at that moment and try a research it more, I do a mind map to summarise notes and go over them. Practice questions and making up my own questions on key topics help also. Revision groups with my friends are good, teaching someone helps me to learn as well and them teaching me. YouTube videos and animations are also good.
