How to get the most out of your CIMA study text

It is not always enough to simply read through a text book or from a computer screen, processing large amounts of information on a monitor can make it tricky to track your progress. It is always useful to use different ways of revision to ensure you are remembering all the key bits of revision.

I am often approached by students who are finding it difficult to take in key theory from the text, despite having read it through a number of times. In my experience, one of the most effective way of taking in information from any text is by making notes as you go along. The process of reading a portion of text and then translating this into a written note, helps some learner's consume and understand information easier and faster. 

Another useful tip that I have found is to use a highlighter when going over texts. Do not go crazy and highlight everything! Nor should you just highlight some things and just focus on them. In my experience, I have found highlighting the things I find most difficult is a useful tool to remind me that I need to go back over it. That way, the highlighted text is a reminder to focus on that particular area!
