Reading your notes ain’t studying…
So, how do you work to build memory? Many times, when asked, seniors tell me “I read over my notes.” Isn’t that called reading? While repetition does help build memory, there are other ways to practice analysis. One easy (and free) way is to use interactive quizzes found online. You at least know immediately if you have reasoned poorly, and you might be able to go back to the book or notes and look up why. Here are a few sets of practice problems:
1. Your online text resource website–always listed on the main page of the blog. Go to Chp. 5, and take the quiz (menu on the left). There are usually 10-15 multiple choice questions.
2. Not sure who made this one, but here is another small set of multiple choice questions to get you thinking.
3. Here is another “quiz” based on flashcards. First, you can click “study” and do the flashcard bit. Then, click quiz. Click your choice for each question and once at the bottom, hit “score this quiz.”
These were easy to find with a Google search….just an idea.
