Advantages after doing an outline

  • Saves time when reviewing
  • Facilitates better reviewing
  • Facilitates writing graphs and summaries

Rules of the outline:

– Never outline during the first reading.

– Don’t outline anything you don’t understand. Use the dictionary.

– Don’t outline too much, only the key words.

– What you outlined must have an individual sense, even if it’s not grammatically correct.

– Find the main and secondary ideas. Highlight them with a different code.

– It’s important that the outlined part doesn’t interfere with reading. A rule can be helpful, use meaningful colors
