30 Golesburq Register-Moil, Golesburg, Thursdoy, Oct. 3, 1963 (30) It's Work But You Cau Do It By The Reading Laboratory, Inc. Written for Newspaper Enterprise Association THIS is the last article in our series on the best ways to study, so we'll sum up everything we've talked about. The first thing you must do when you start a course, any course, is to find the point of view of the course. See what the course is getting at, what it'* supposed to do, what you're supposed to learn Mid why you're supposed to learn it. Then start to study your teacher—see what he likes best in the course and what he doesn't like. See whether he likes class discussions. Find out what kind of tests he gives and when he gives them. See if he likes small details or if he is satisfied with THE BIG QUESTION ON HEALTH INSURANCE FOR SENIOR CITIZENS: IS IT AVAILABLE?

I. THOMAS, MGR. 309 BONTO BLDG. PH. 343-8583 a good understanding of the main idea of the course. For your part, evaluate the relative Importance of each of your courses and plan a study schedule accordingly. Find the right study environment—good light, no noise, hard chair and a desk. When you do begin to study, study in spurts. Don't try to hit a single subject for a couple of hours straight. Study in half-hour stretches to keep your mind fresh. Before you begin to study a textbook, overview the whole book. Use the table of contents, unit summaries, time charts, and so forth to get a good picture of total context of the subject. (This doesn't apply to math or foreign courses—they're step-by- step processes.) When you study the individual chapters, use the "survey and DR. I.

Wednesday** -rn Noon. •41-017 0» M2-S017 resurvey" method. Survey the bold print, maps, graphs, pic* ture captions and chapter summaries to get the main idea. Then read the first sentence of each paragraph to strengthen your grasp of the main idea; skim through the body of the text to pick out the important secondary ideas—check off the ones that are important. Finally, skim through again to get the important details. Don't try to memorize them —check them off so you'll be able to find them later. When you do memorize the details, remember that meaningful material is the easiest to memorize. Be sure you understand the main idea before you take a stab at memorization. Before you attend a lecture, survey the textbook chapter that pertains. Take lecture notes only on what is not in the text. When you listen to a lecture, listen for the main idea. Don't scribble down everything that is said — just write a short summary of each major point. Spend most of your lime listening. That night, after lecture, apply the "survey and resurvey" method to your textbook, and then make a short general outline in your notebook that combines the lecture with the ideas in the text. Don't put a lot of details in your outline. Just make a note as to where they can be found. When you prepare for a test, you'll do most of your studying from your notebook. It saves a lot of time and reading. Remember when you study history you must overview to find the pattern, the flows of historical movement. In sociology, psychol­ ogy, political science and economics look for the general concepts that bring order to the subject on which everything else is based. Physics and chemistry are based on just a few general laws. Find out what they are and understand them before you start to memorize formulas. Take it slow in math; go step by step. Understand each rule before you try to go on to the next one. That's all there is to it. It's work, but it works! Good luck! (End of Series.)
