Keeping up with readings

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I am a first year clinical psychology doctoral student, and I'm wondering if anyone has any tips or suggestions on how to digest and remember the content of the course readings you have? I currently have all the pdfs stored on my tablet where I highlight and annotate things I think are important from the journal articles and book chapters we have to read. I think the journal articles will be easier to remember because they have a central idea, but I guess I'm stumped with picking out relevant and irrelevant information from the (very long) book chapters. Any advice is appreciated, thanks!

The book chapters should also have a central idea. They may have 2 or 3 depending on the length. Think about the reason your professor picked those book chapters. What's the course's focus? What's the title of the book/ chapter? Every piece of writing should have some sort of central purpose. Think of these questions as you read to get a better idea of what that could be and highlight/annotate the same as you do articles.
