The Proper Editing of Notes: The Key to Successful Learning. AVKO "Great Idea" Reprint Series No. 629.
The deliberate rewriting of lecture notes into forms suitable for study and review is the key to successful learning. Using the outline technique helps students to think in terms of what the main points are and what are examples or secondary points. The divided page technique allows students to quiz themselves daily on the material they must learn. These techniques boil down to two elements: the quality of time spent studying and the frequency of studying. It is not how long students spend studying, it is how often and how well they study that counts. (RS)
