If you're a student who cares about learning and getting good grades, you surely know of a few different study methods. One of the most common ones is using a highlighter when you're reading your textbook or notes. However, if you don't use the highlighter correctly, you won't be able to learn successfully. For a few tips on how to use your highlighter effectively when you study, continue reading.

How to Study with a Highlighter

  1. The first tip is to use different colors. Designating a color to highlight one type of information (for example, using green to highlight dates), can help you when you need to identify the information quickly. Moreover, it can also help with the assimilation and recollection of the information.
  2. It should go without saying, but you should only use your highlighters to highlight. If you use them to take notes or draw on the pages of your books, you'll be very confused and overstimulated when you have to study.
  3. Speaking of avoiding confusion, highlight carefully. Keep in mind that if you make everything stand-out, nothing will. For that reason, you should start highlighting after the second or third read of the text, so you know what information is really important.
  4. Lastly, don't rely on highlighters to study. If you want to learn effectively, only use highlighters as an aid. For example, you can read your textbook, highlight the most important parts, and then take notes of said parts.
