print out updated version of outline each week and read through it 10 minutes before class daily...I am hoping the revision helps me memorize it in a sane way. my torts exam is closed book, so Id really like to make sure I know everything---especially cases I can analogize to. Im assuming that since its closed book and most ppl dont outline until the end, there will be people that either memorize bll and just use that, or else ppl that memorize everything abt cases and dont really know how to take exams..so then I can throw some nice analogies in there and make my exam stand out. Reading through the outlines twice (or three times a week for civ pro) will probably be really good for memorizing
ps: i have no idea how ppl outline at the end of the semester...I had a hard time remembering how certain things fit together thsi past weekend because I was outlining material that was about 2 wks old
I completely agree - reading it on paper is a different experience. I usually print out every couple weeks to review and make edits by hand but never done a review before class. Thanks for the suggestion, I might give that a try
onenote has a cool feature for learning your outline... it lets you collapse/expand text. so you'll see "rule 15(a)" ... then you can quiz yourself on what the rule is... then you click expand and it will show you the rule... then you collapse and continue to the next piece of your outline. it's like digital flashcards inside your outline.
Mind sharing how that is done? Sounds like a great tool for studying
I was just thinking how cool it would be if onenote had that feature. Please share.
