Say to yourself “Know I this information?”

Picture what you read.

Organize in your mind all your study aids.

Remember to anotate information.

Tell yourself to go back to the “anotated” info.


Start with the Title.

You should start by looking at the title of the book. If you see a word that sounds familiar, then you probably need to do some research before diving into the text. For example, if you see “Independence Day”, you might think that you’ve seen the movie before. However, you haven’t. So, you need to find out more about the story before you dive into the book.

Next, check out the table of contents. 

It's usually located near the front of the book. If there isn't one, then you'll need to flip through the pages until you find it. Once you've found the table of contents, make sure to read the first few chapters. These are called the preface and introduction. They give you an overview of what the rest of the book is going to cover.

Find the Main Characters.

Now, start reading! However, if you're having trouble understanding something, take notes. That way, when you go back to the book later, you won't forget any details.
