Afternoon all

I have been practicing with mind mapping a while and thonk its a very good tool to revise.

Hopefully somebody can help me with this on, i have an exam soonish and one part is gonna be asking about upto 5 different processes, so i need to know what they, how the work, advangtes and disadvantages. They seem to have overlap with each other. I have created a map for each, but not exactly sure how to keep them for overlapping when revising. For example one says cheap to do, other say expensive. How do ppl define each map as i would imagine its easy to get the two points above mixed up as similar to each other?

Thanks in advance

I would suggest having something associated with each...It's not quite the same, but when I had poetry analysis to learn for a set of poems, I did each mind map on a different colour of paper, which helped me remember and associate which was which. It might also be that varying your revisions technique a little more will help you- for example, you make one of them into a poster (then you know that the one on the poster was expensive to do, as it's the only one you've done as a poster), do flashcards for another, or even just learn about/revise each one in a different place. If you have other things which you associate with them that makes them distinct, it will hopefully help you to remember them separately. Hope this helps

Thank you for that, i will have a go and see where it gets me.

How many mind maps would people suggest i learn at once? I know its limitless but my exams are a month away and i have 3 of them, each a week apart. I dont want to go mad and have loads, but on the same note i will need a few to have all the information on.

Would 10 each exam be too much? Will have formula to learn to but cant figure out how to mind map it.

Thanks in advance

I don't really think there's a number we can suggest, as obviously you could make fewer huge or more smaller ones...It will be different for everyone, but mindmaps might not be the way to revise every part of the course. For something like learning formulae, practice questions should help you, and flashcards to make sure you remember them.

Thank you for your response. Im in the process of making formula flashcards as have quite a few to remember. Im gonna try and stick to 10 for each exam, might have to cut down the info but cues will help me remember.

Thanks again

Ok, my first attempt at one. Pretty sure all the infornation is on. Problem is i kept the same colour for adv and limit for example for each. Would people use this kind of mind map to learn similiar evaluation processes? As suggested above could use coloured paper, may go down the route. How would people improve this to make it easlier to remember and seperate between then

Regards

In terms of what is best, it really does depend on you...Mine were always very functional, rather than looking particularly nice (I just used a black pen), and made huge detailed ones covering a whole unit rather than several smaller ones for each topic. There isn't a right or wrong answer, so don't worry too much about whether what you're doing is 'right'. So long as what you're doing is an effective way of helping you learn, it's worthwhile

Yeah, my only concern is getting mainly the adv and limit mixed up as have 6 Nde that are all similar. How would you advise actually learning the mind map, just look and try and draw it out from memory?

Thanks Sophie

Hello all,

I have just come across this post. I am currently in the process of revising for my exams. I have a question that hopefully somebody can help with.

Once you have created a mind map, what is the best method to actually remember it? I have been practicing we drawing them from scratch, problem is this is taking time to sink in and I keep forgetting bits.

Are there any other methods people use to help speed up the process and eventually remember everything on the page?

JB

Bump please, what do people find the best method to review and learn mind map?

Struggling to learn it all, no point making a new thread.

Thanks
JB
