You can predict how well a student will do simply on the basis oftheir use of effective study strategies.
This book is for college students who are serious about being successful instudy, and teachers who want to know how best to help their students learn.
Being a successful student is far more about being a smart user of effectivestrategies than about being ‘smart’. Research has shown it is possible topredict how well a student will do simply on the basis of their use of studystrategies.
This workbook looks at the most important group of study strategies – how totake notes (with advice on how to read a textbook and how to prepare for alecture). You’ll be shown how to:
format your notes
use headings and highlighting
how to write different types of text summaries and pictorial ones, including concept maps and mind maps (you’ll find out the difference, and the pros and cons of each)
ask the right questions
make the right connections
review your notes
evaluate text to work out which strategy is appropriate.
There’s advice on individual differences and learning styles, and on how tochoose the strategies that are right for both you and the situation.
Using effective notetaking strategies will help you remember what you read.It will help you understand more, and set you on the road to becoming an expert(or at least getting good grades!).
Successful studying isn’t about hours put in, it’s about spending your timewisely. You want to study smarter not harder.
As always with the Mempowered books, this thorough (and fully referenced)workbook doesn’t re-hash the same tired advice that’s been peddled for so long.Rather, Effective Notetaking builds on the latest cognitive andeducational research to help you study for success.
This 3rd edition has advance organizers and multi-choice review questions foreach chapter, plus some additional material on multimedia learning, and takingnotes in lectures.
