When I am studying biology or history or any type of subject that requires one to memorize a lot of facts, I usually read my assigned text and type up the notes on my computer. Then I would re-read the notes over and over again so I remember those facts.
Unfortunately, my study technique is not very useful since I forget a lot of facts when it comes for an exam. I was wondering if anyone knows of a more effective way of memorize facts and processes such as meiosis, mitosis, krebs-cycle, photosynthesis ... Sometimes I feel like I take too many notes on my computer and when I am rereading, I felt like I just copied and pasted what was in the textbook onto the computer.
