Chapter 35. Learning Ladder

RUNG 7: REVIEW SKILLS
DAY 1 Discipline Your Time! Make a revised time schedule using the blank on page 15. Place this schedule in your notebook and above your desk. Use it for two or three weeks, but modify it as necessary. You are in charge of all changes, and should allow yourself some flexibility.

DAY 2 Take class notes using the model format on page 23. Create study questions and highlight your notes today. Review for 5–10 minutes as soon as possible after each class. Also, review all the abbreviations and begin using them.
DAY 3 Don’t Stop Now! Return to the Reading Skills Section beginning on page 27. Apply the SQ3R techniques to this book. The book is yours so mark it like you would any other text.
DAY 4 Be Persistent! Apply your study skills to a magazine article or any other material you want to study critically.
DAY 5 Take 30 minutes to review the entire Memory Section and memorize the concepts of learning signaled by the catchword ROOSTERS. Use this principle for one of your classes.
DAY 6 Take 30 minutes to memorize the hints for taking objective examinations. You can do it! Create a catchword or rhyming phrase of your own. Remember to recite aloud or study with another person.
DAY 7 CONGRATULATIONS! You are an excellent candidate for success because you are applying a plan of action that can become a pattern of learning for a lifetime.
