Finals are just around the corner which means that, soon enough, you'll be grabbing your highlighter to go over your lessons in an effort to do well on your tests. As you know, the study method you employ can have an impact on the outcome of your study sessions. What you may not know, however, is that simply using a highlighter to study isn't effective. If you don't want to leave your trusty study companion behind, here are a few tips so you can use your highlighter correctly to learn more.

How to Study with a Highlighter

Use Different Colors

Using different colors to highlight can make your notes easier to digest. For instance, you can use a yellow highlighter for names, and a blue one for dates. This way, you'll instantly recognize the information you're going over, which can help you remember it better.

Don't Write with Them

If you're ever tempted to write in your textbook with your highlighter, don't! Doing so will only confuse you and will keep your eye away from the other highlighted areas in your study material.

Have a Critical Eye

Before you highlight something, ask yourself: "is this really important?" If you overdo it, you will end up with pages filled with highlighter where nothing stands out. To help you become more critical, hold out on the highlighter at first. Read, assimilate the information, and highlight until the second or third read.

Employ Other Study Methods

If your whole study plan consists of just highlighting your textbooks, you won't learn as much as you could. If you want to actually retain the information, you will need to use highlighting in conjunction with other study methods. A good idea would be to use highlighting as an aid for note-taking: you can read your textbooks, highlight them, take notes, and highlight the important information in your notes.
