How to Easily Remember What You Read

Many academic disciplines require students to read vast amounts of dense scholarly materialin addition to keeping up with lecture notes. Just reading the required number of pages can seem next to impossible, much less remembering what you have read. Here are some proven strategies that can help you organize and remember the information.

Focus on Main Points


The first or second paragraph following a heading often contains a summary of the main points, but check other paragraphs as well. Take note of overt statements of the author’s intent, such as, “My aim is ….” Try to notice the author’s style. Are important points mentioned more often at the beginning, middle, or end of paragraphs?

Put It in Your Own Words


Put main ideas into your own words, whether saying them out loud or writing them
down. If you can’t do it, you probably don’t yet understand the material. Make separate summary notes for an easy overview, and then test yourself after each paragraph, section and chapter.

Make Full Use of Your Textbook

Don’t be afraid to write in your books—you paid for them! The value of making margin notes to enhance your learning will far outweigh the resale value of a spotless secondhand textbook.

First Read, then Underline and/or Highlight

Reading a section first will help you see key ideas and avoid underlining too much.
Using different colours and symbols (in moderation!) helps categorize types of
information such as definitions, important people and new concepts.
Write in the Margins (See also the LAC’s “Underlining and Highlighting” handout)
Be brief, but clear. You can jot down examples that will remind you of key ideas or your own thoughts about and reactions to the text.

Use Sticky Tabs

For future reference, bookmark important sections and ideas, labeling your tabs with key words so you won’t waste time trying to find those ideas later. You may also want to make notes about where to find related ideas, for example, “definition on p. 20.”

Read Headings

Pay attention to headings and sub‐headings, which are usually clear summaries of the section. Sometimes using these headings can also be helpful in organizing your notes.

Notice Text Layout

Notice bold and italicized words, which often signify key terms or definitions. Diagrams and other visuals can also represent important concepts. Read captions!

View Chapters Holistically

Recognizing the relationship of ideas within and between each chapter will help build a more complete understanding of the material. Are the ideas organized chronologically, by cause and effect, or in some other logical sequence?
