Did you know……
People only remember 10% of what they read, 20% of what they hear, & 30% of what they see.
However, the percentages go up significantly when you see & hear something together (visual + auditory), and then even more when you say something out loud (verbal/auditory), and the highest percentage of recall comes from actually doing something (kinesthetic).
That being said, wouldn’t it make sense to study by combining these actions to maximize your recall? I recommend trying it.
It isn’t enough to simply read the required chapters your instructors assign and review your notes. You have to actively read & review.
- Quiz yourself, check your knowledge of major concepts taught in the course
- Go back and make sure you understood what you read
- Write down major concepts and review them in your notes
- Make sure you can verbally explain the main concepts to another individual (this is key people)
