Audio notes: Engage your verbal senses

Today I want to share a common tip which people seldom use. You must have heard about the technique of audio notes but most of you might not have done it. DO IT. Recording your text notes in your own voice and listening to them is one of the best tips I ever learned.

When you read out a passage, you engage your visual as well as verbal senses and the probability of remembering stuff increases by 50%.

One of the best advantage of doing studies in this way is that you can do it anytime: waiting for a meal/line in a grocery store/on the bus etc. Just plug in your player and listen, Nobody will guess you are studying!

Here is a list of five handy apps to record audio notes.

Don’t forget to share your own study strategies in the comments!
