develop photographic memory
Try this approach:<br />
Read your material as if you are going to have to teach it to someone else. Highlight key words/phrases in the same manner. Then write/type ONLY the highlighted words/phrases on a sheet of paper...it should automatically be in outline form if you did it right. Now, go share this info with someone...get in a study group. Retention comes in many forms, seeing, speaking, writing...and combined it stays in your head...it's an easy way to learn.
When reading text etc try to develop: keys words, acronyms, abbreviations, etc to help you remember.
Above-average intelligence is a must-have... <br />
having that, good marks seem to come all by themselves, no strategy needed...
that's like asking how you can get a degree without going to university. The best option would be to listen in class, but even that...
Ha ha ha ha.........sorry but studying is the way to get good grades.
