How to handle textbooks

     The topic of this section:

     This section contains step by step instructions for a system that
     allows a person to manage the study of college level textbooks while
     decreasing their overall study time* and insuring higher grades.

     
The key components of the whole process are a:
                                     
KEY WORD LIST
             How you deal with the key words in the subject / textbook will
             determine your success in studying the subject.
                              A LIST OF BOLD HEADINGS
             
This list acts as a detailed map of the book and chapters,
             very useful tools both in class and while studying
                    
 A comprehension pattern (Notes) of any lecture.
             
 comp. pattern helps guide study.

     
*The process IS labor intensive, the first two components are
       done at the very beginning of the course, before the first
       class meeting.
 The process concentrates the majority of the work
      
 at the front end.  But this weekend of concentrated effort applying
       
the  process can save many dozens of study hours for the
       
rest of the course.  

       You may be the brightest student in the class, you may even know
       the subject better than the instructor.
