Although highlighters can be a great tool for study, sometimes we overuse them leading to entire pages of highlighted paragraphs! Here are some tips to help: 

  1. Try to limit yourself to highlighting after you have read an entire paragraph or sentence over in order to find keywords or points. 
  2. Only highlight keywords not sentences: Use these keywords to then recall your knowledge. 
  3. Try colour coding: One colour for keywords and another for definitions 
  4. Try writing in your own words, explanations or expanding on keywords when writing notes.
