    Summary of the video: (as requested)
    1. Study 30 mins at a time - Do not force yourself to sit and work, as soon as you start lacking or feeling bored, tired, (sometimes frustrated). Get up and leave your learning environment, take a break.
    2. talk out loud, to someone else or an empty chair
    3. 80% reciting 20% reading:
    >write it in your own words, don't try to remember it word for word, it means nothing. and then go back add in what you missed out and see what you forgot.
    >read it. look away. say it in your own words to prove to yourself you understand / know it.
    5. Remembering and recognizing are different. --> ensure you can write it out in your own words


    Concepts:
    > Put in it your own words
    > Break it down, go into detail to make it more logical and therefor easier to rememmber
    > Find the meaning behind things to better understand them.
    > Think about it e.g. How would an elephant help on a deserted island in a survival situation? (This is more active.)
    > Relate it to what you already know, maybe its tied into another topic (reenforcement)
    > Study it: Now, tomorrow and a week from now. (helps with recall)
    > Straight after class expand on notes you made, recall what you heard in the lesson and use text.

    Facts:
    > Rote memory: Read, Cover, write.
    > Mnemonics:
    > Acroynms: E.g. SOHCOHTOA (Sin = opp/hyp | Cos=opp/hyp | Tan=opp/adj)
    > Interactive images: Diagrams (labbled), good for things like learning the heart and Cell cycles for instance
    > Flash cards: use for things you find hard to remember, or frequently need to go over
    > Pull out key term you need to remember

    Using Textbooks:
    Survay: go through the whole chapter (familiarise yourself) ask questions, things you don't understand full etc.
    Question: ask questions (the ones at the bottom of the page on most textbooks are helpful for this) this ensures you read with purpose and intent you rememmber and not just for the sake of it (or make your own using spec points or spec notes)
    Read: Read through the whole chapter linking back to the questions and preparing to be able to answer then at the end.
    Recite: ensure you understood what you read, write a summary of everything if that helps. And mark Key concepts you need to learn in each chapter.
    Reveiw: Just before exams, ensure you remmeber everything, quickly run over it again not leaving anything out.

    (^ this was the part that i found really eye-opening and helpful personally)
