Smarter read with SQ3R


SQ3R is an effective method for reading and studying. It stands for: Survey, Question, Read, Recite, Review.

Either active reading in five phases:

1. Explore the text.
2. Ask yourself questions.
3. Read the text.
4. Tell in your own words what you've read.
5. Check it again after.

This way you will better remember what you've read. That's because you actively build a mental frame around the information in the text. And you can target read, because you are looking for the answer to certain questions.

1. Explore the text.
Look globally to text. Read the title and key phrases of the opening of each chapter. Read the main components of the summary and conclusions.
2. Ask yourself questions.
Note the questions that come up with. For what purpose do you read the text? What is the text? Which questions the author tries to answer?
3. Read the text.
Read the whole text, but while skipping over unimportant parts. Try to understand what you read and take the time. Make a diagram of the main elements.
4. Tell in your own words what you've read.
Try your own words to answer the questions you've asked. Try (in mind) someone else to explain what in the text.
5. Check it again after.
Read the relevant parts of the text again. Work out your notes. Look for the answer directed questions still unanswered.

The main advantages of SQ3R in a row:

* Spend your time reading best.
* You better remember what you read.
* You read purposeful.
* You select the important information in a text.
