I was really grateful that I joined this workshop. Following my plan, even though it's not 100%, it did help me to improve my academic planning and management. For right now, I am about to continue using this effective learning and revision skills in moving into my second academic year which is very important.
I realized my mistakes in studying smarty, and not just rote learning. Skimming, scanning and making notes are indeed three critical skills that every student should apply in his or her own study. I figured out that writting down important short notes improved greatly my memory in remembering the facts and main points. Colours even make them more effective.
As a result, I would choose to jote down the points down onto papers, making mind-maps and doing a short summary (if possible) in my study. To prove this, the result for my first year academic year is satisfactory!!! I am satisfied with my own result, even though this skill would require more effort and time.
