This could work for any subject, not just history. I've never been great at studying but now I have a way better idea for what to do now and I plan on using this in the future.

It is suggested that you read lecture notes ( date by date) then read through your books. Whether you study alone or with a partner is your choice. But before you look at notes and the book, make sure you clarify what kind of test it is ( multiple choice, objective,short answer etc) so you'll know how to approach your studying.

If I studied for the exam this way, I think it would definitely work. It would help me review all the topics. I could go back to the book and review the unit summaries. Also I should take notes in class and highlight only the main points. Then, I should go home and review everyday, and study the notes.

I should be aware of the authors interpretation so I understand the text fully. Studying with friends is an option, but I would prefer not to. I concentrate better when I study by myself.

I usually have some to a lot of trouble when it comes to studying for a test. It gets so boring to read that I tend to shy away and not pay attention fully. This article gives a great way to approach studying. Re-reading lecture notes and then re-writing the concepts that are important is helpful.

I agree that it is good to underline in books and notes that way you know what to read and you don't have to constantly read everything. I agree that studying alone or with friends does have its ups and downs, but I think alone is more efficient because there are fewer distractions. I like this article. because it can work for every test and any subject, not just history. I now have a better understanding of how to study more ably than previously.
