This Study Tip concerns the search and survey reading method.
One should rarely read an exam preparation book like a novel. Any attempt to sequentially memorize each page from cover to cover requires an exorbitant amount of time and concentration.
As an alternative, candidates should scan over the headings, titles, picture captions and questions before covering the unit’s outlines. This “search and survey” method programs your brain to know what to look for when reading the outlines. As a result, you will retain more of what you read, thereby increasing accuracy when answering the exam questions.
