Hey. At the moment, I am going through all my textbooks and summarising them on QUIZLET, so revision is easier during year 11. In my Sociology 9-1 textbook there is a two sentence summary on the whole page. I don't know whether to use the pre- written summary or read and write my own summaries, in the process of reading the whole textbook thoroughly. What do you guys think?

A two sentence summary sounds too broad.
Not all things are suitable for flash cards. revision notes and mind maps have their place.

Make your own notes that contain the level of info you need, which should be more detailed imo. You can always add the summary in, just so you arent missing out.

Lets say there were 20 chapters in the book, so the whole subject could be reduced to 40 sentences? Doesnt seem enough detail.
