We recommend you to take down notes while reading for the reason that it will increase your comprehensive knowledge.

You may also use different colors and headings for better understanding and recall. It is true that when you write it, you remember it in a better way. There’s no way that you will forget it. As you write, your eyes, hands, and brain coordinate in a much better way than when you just read. Hence, try this method and make use of your textbooks effectively.

When you will come across such words or sentences frequently then you will start remembering them. It is one of the best ways to use textbooks effectively.
  • Having a REFERENCE book: Textbooks will have a list of reference books from where the information is taken. We encourage students to study reference books also once they are over with the textbooks. Reading and studying are not only about doing for the sake of marks but to gain knowledge also. Reference books will help you in extensive learning and making notes with a deeper understanding. Therefore, if you can manage to have a reference book then do not skip it.
