To be a good student, you need to use effective study methods. To that end, you can take notes, create study groups, make diagrams, and more. One popular study method is highlighting textbooks and notes. However, doing that alone won't help you learn as much as you could. If you're eager to use your highlighter to study, below you'll find tips on how to use it to get the best results possible.

How to Study with a Highlighter

Employ Different Colors

Using highlighters in different colors and assigning each one to a specific type of information can improve the recognition, assimilation, retention, and recollection of the material you have to study (for instance, use your blue highlighter to emphasize important names).

Use Them for Highlighting

When you have a highlighter in your hand, it can be tempting to doodle or use them to take notes. However, all this will do is confuse you and pull your attention away from the important information you should be learning. To avoid that, only use your highlighters to highlight.

Highlight With Care

Something else that you should keep in mind is that you should be very critical of what you highlight because, if you highlight everything, the highlight will lose its impact. That's why you should only highlight after you've read the text twice and are aware of what's most important in it.

Use Your Highlighter as a Study Aid

Lastly, you should use your highlighter as an aid in another study method. This means that you shouldn't rely on it alone if you want to learn effectively. You can use your highlighter, for example, when you're taking notes of the information in your textbook.
