Take Notes & Highlight

Whenever you take notes from any book try these three questions

  1. How I can use this? 
  2. Why I must use this?
  3. When I'll use this?

When you start questioning this, you will be more clear why you are reading the text. That will help to involve in the reading and the more you involve in the reading more you can remember. Try to make notes in your own words.
