The SQ3R Reading Formula Really Works. AVKO "Great Idea" Reprint Series No. 626.
Students who honestly try the SQ3R (Survey, Question, Read, Review, Recite) approach to studying almost universally find it successful. Students should first set a time and a place for their study. When reading a chapter, students should: (1) survey chapter titles, headings, illustrations, etc.; (2) figure out what the chapter is really concerned with and what the teacher will expect them to know; (3) read the chapter; (4) recall other related items as they read and anticipate what will come next; and (5) recite to themselves what they think the author is trying to get at. Using a divided page technique for taking notes can also help retain essential information. (RS)
