Daily and Weekly Review
Begin daily review on the first day of class, allowing at least 15 minutes per subject. Review your notes within 24 hours to shift material from short-term to long-term memory. (Up to 80% of material is forgotten within 24 hours unless it is reviewed.)
Quickly read through your notes, highlighting the main points and marking any points that need clarification. Mark material you need to spend more time on. If you have a lot of points to remember, commit to memorizing something every day. Use the PAS study technique in Study Strategies to ensure reading is active and appropriate review strategies are used early in the semester rather than just before exams.
Schedule a regular weekly review to go through all your notes. Allow approximately one hour per subject. As you review, test yourself on the knowledge and practice answering questions and doing problems.
