3. Active recall: judge what material you've learned & what material you need to study.

My Learning Style
1. Attend all lectures.
After dealing with the material a few times, I rewrite a new outline based on the facts that I didn't retain. I keep the class outline/notes (that apply to that particular class) in my class binder until the final exam is applied or the class ends.
Hopefully, the size of each re-created outline becomes reduced if I answer the questions properly. The individual that is testing me makes small notations in the notes about what details the material I did not retain. I try to find a classmate that takes good notes in that same class and I look at their notes in order to find the/what information that I am missing. I add the information to my outline. Depending on the individual, I may ask for suggestions on the what area to study... and how.
