Review the text

When you have finished reading, skim back over the chapter or text, or read your notes. Then check your memory by reciting and “questioning the text” again.

  • Has the text answered your questions?
  • Are there any concepts that you do not understand?
  • Are you able to scan the text quickly to answer specific questions about it?

You may even write a summary or make a flow chart or notes chart of the text or chapter. You will be able to see at a glance what the text was about. Reviewing like this is helpful when you have to revise for exams.
