C. Active Studying

Research has demonstrated a relationship between how well you remember and active study strategies. The more actively you work with the material, i.e. ask questions to it, organise it, relate it to what you have already learnt, the more you understand and remember. Good note taking skills can help you organise the material you study but it is very important that you actively choose what to write in your notes. Don't just copy the book.
