When preparing for courses one should establish a good place to study with essential supplies at hand and good lighting. When studying it would be wise to use more then one study technique. Some of today’s techniques may include but are not limited to: mind maps, charts and graphs, using color in notes to organize, visualizing material, explaining material to someone else, writing outlines and developing a way to analyze the information in such a way that will be easier to retain. There is a study technique called SQ3R. This technique requires a student to use critical thinking skills when going over new material. SQ3R is a technique employed to help remember and review information. “The symbols S-Q-3-R stand for survey, question, read, recite, and review (Carter et al., 2002, p.148).” Once a student realizes what their learning style is then they can effectively adapt to the Axia College online learning environment.
