- Re-read your notes the same day. Make sure that you got everything and didn't miss something important. This gives you an opportunity to put the entire day's lesson 'together', since the memory of the actual lesson is still in your mind. If you wait a couple of days before looking at your notes, you won't remember the lesson and you will be relying on your notes alone, instead of your memory.
- Re-write your notes in a condensed form. This is best done right after you have re-read your notes. Condense your notes into a smaller space (short and sweet). It has the concepts (in YOUR words) that you need to understand. These will make great study sheets for the assessment.
- Look at the problems soon after you have done one in class. Each day after class, look in the book and find the types of problems you did that day in class. Do those problems then; don't wait until right before the assessment, because there are too many problems to do in a short amount of time. If you do them that day, you will still have the method in your mind.
