Reading Comprehension & Studying
May 19, 2014 2:10 PM Subscribe
This is somewhat of a strange question, but when you are reading a book, how many times do you go over the information? I'll use the book Succeed, How to Reach Your Goals as an example. I read through the book and highlighted what I believed to be the important points. Then I go back and re-read the book once more. Is this overkill? What strategies do people use to really understand something that you are reading? How do you know when you have really taken in the information?
What strategies do others use when they are trying to learn something well enough that they can use it? Any suggestions or anecdotal stories would be much appreciated?
