help you understand the passage. Use a variety of marks, but be systematic and neat. Use the margins for recall questions. List questions (or brief headings) for which the answers are in the passage. Many of these will be the very questions you generated in the QUESTION phase of this task. RECALL/RECITE This step tests your understanding and strengthens your memory of what you have read. Working only from the recall questions in the margins of your text, try to recite (out loud) the answers. The physical activity of thinking, pronouncing, and hearing your own words involves more of your senses and thus strengthens memory. Check yourself against the items you have marked in the passage. Continue testing until you can recall the important points. This repeated selftesting and recitation is the key to effective memorization. Use your own words in this process. RECITATION IS FAR MORE EFFECTIVE THAN MERELY READING AND REREADING THE CHAPTER! REVIEW If you have followed the steps outlined above, you will probably discover that later reviews are easily and quickly accomplished. Skim over chapter headings, trying to summarize as you go. Consider information from lectures, and how it connects with the textbook material. Space your review periods over several days or weeks. Your first review should be within 24 hours of your first reading! (This is when the most forgetting occurs.) Set up a schedule that is comfortable for you and that is based on how difficult the text is. 11

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
