phrases often enhances memorization.
(For more on Mnemonics, see

the more likely you are to remember.
(For more on Mnemonics, see
What are some memory "tricks"?)

11

(For more on Time Management, see
How can I use my time to be more
successful in this course?)

16

The statement is True.

The bold print headings will
often separate the chapter into
chunks of information and signal
the main points covered.

perspective of the entire lecture when
you have a clearer idea of the main points.
(For more on the Cornell note-taking system,
see Self-Testing from your notes to review for Tests)

20

The statement is True.

The Cornell Note-Taking System
