Some students rely on highlighters to study. However, if they don't know how to use them effectively, they may not be learning much. For that reason, the following post has some tips on the matter, so you can make the most out of your highlighter during your study sessions.

How to Study with a Highlighter

Use Colored Highlighters

The first tip is to have different colored highlighters. Doing so will allow you to designate a color to each type of information. For example, you can use a green highlighter to emphasize math formulas. This way, you'll be able to recognize, assimilate, and remember the information in your textbooks better.

Only Use Them to Highlight

Doodling, writing notes, and other similar actions are common when you're studying. However, doing them with your highlighter can make matters worse, as those doodles will distract your eye and your focus from the study material. Refrain from this action and only use your highlighter to highlight.

Highlight With Care

If you highlight every single word in your textbook, you won't know what's really important. For that reason, it is suggested that you highlight carefully. A good tip on this would be to highlight only after you've read the text once and you've had a chance to reflect what the most important information in it is.

Employ Other Study Methods

Finally, know that highlighting alone isn't an effective study method. However, you can use your highlighter to make your other study methods more effective. For instance, you can read your textbook, highlight the important information, take notes of said information, and then highlight the key data in your notes.
