How to GET something out of your textbook!


How much do you enjoy reading your textbook? Not that much? Maybe it's because you're expecting it to read like the latest grocery-store paperback. Textbooks are full of great information, but it's dense and full of tables and figures. Try this next time you crack open a book: the SQ3R method. Read about it here.

I enjoy studying the book. Its a lot better than the last edition of Campbell. There are more figures and illustrators. It helps me a lot because Im a visual learner. The SQ3R is similar to how I used the last edition of Campbell. Now though, I dont use it that much anymore because I find it more convenient for me to review my highschool notes and the Cliff Notes I used for AP Bio. Since they are already familiar, it makes it easierfor me to refresh my memory. I still use our textbook to review relationships of facts that may not be on my other notes. The lecture notes are really helping me a lot too. :)
