What are the top three tips?
- Write everything important down over and over again, until you can say it in your sleep – whether that be in a journal, on a whiteboard or on your computer. Writing by hand has been proven as the most effective method of remembering.
- If you must type up your notes, don’t forget that some fonts are easier and quicker to read than others. Choose a serif font such as Palatino, Georgia or Garamond for speedy reading.
- Write quotes and sums on post-it notes and stick them everywhere: on your bathroom mirror, by your favourite mug, on your laptop. You could also opt for digital flashcards using a programme like Memrise to remember specific facts and figures on the go.
