I started a blog called SMART STUDY STRATEGIES http://www.smartstudystrategies.blogspot.com/
just dedicated to study strategies. Below is a sample from today's entry:
Choosing different colored paper for notes on different chapters or concepts will help separate your notes in your mind when you try and recall information during a test. For example, it your notes on chapter 3 are on yellow paper, and your notes for chapter 4 are on pink paper, and your notes for chapter 5 are on blue paper, when you are in the middle of the test and need to recall a concept, you can first navigate your thoughts to a color.
"I remember that! It was on the yellow pages. Now, think, What did I write down?"
You are actually narrowing your field of information...
