Remember what you have read!

When you first have written something informational, then you should always remember to re-read it. Sometimes reading what you have written aloud, helps you to understand your grammar and see your errors. Better yourself by always remembering to remember!
Remembering What You Read

This site has step by step explanation as what you need to learn and use the skills to remember what you are reading in a textbook -- especially for a college level textbook.

I thought this was a very helpful site. It gave great tips, and easy to remember steps on textbook reading. I like the tips on purposefully remembering to remember, because often I am so hurried when I read, that I forget what I read as soon as I am finished. Making the extra effort to really take in and remember what you read is a really great tip.
No Fear, Focus
Tyettea Singletary, College Freshman

I was so amazed and relieved when I read this article. Being a new student I was allowing fear to creep into my mind. Asking myself, how am I going to remember everything that I read? This article provided 4 easy steps to remembering what I read, now when I read something I focus on the 4 steps which are, associate, visualize, concentrate, and repeat, before approaching anything I read. No fear for me, just focus. I recommend this article for anyone who has had this same problem.

This article gave me a lot of tips that was helpful while studying. I am more of a visual person but never thought about how I could take the text and turn it into visual pictures in my mind.

This article was very helpful for me. And gave some great tips for reading college textbooks. I liked how it had the main points: Associate, Visualize, Concentrate and Repeat all summed up with useful information. Great article!

The site states that people remember what they read, if they have a purpose or motivation to remember and explains the process of using Association, Visualization, Concentration and Repetition.
It advises you to overview a chapter, saying it helps you to find what is important to learn and the process to remember the information.
By using the following techniques: Association: making things relate to each other; Visualization: picturing things in your mind that you wish to remember; Concentration: practice the art of concentration on what you need to learn so that you acquire the skill; Repetition: repeat the procedures for associating, visualizing, and concentration; over and over with a purpose, you will have learned what you have studied. I think it is great information! I do, however, find it hard to believe that you can find association in everything that you want to remember; or maybe I lack that skill?
