Logical / Mathematical

You learn best by thinking logically and analytically. Try some of the ideas below:

  • Plan your time using a planner (weekly/monthly).
  • Try out the ASK Assignment Calculator to break down tasks into manageable chunks.
  • Have questions in mind before lectures and reading.
  • You might find the SQ3R (Survey, Question, Read, Recite, Review) method helpful when reading.
  • Test yourself with questions and answers.
  • Use the Cornell method for note taking and reviewing.
  • Divide essays/dissertations into sections and allocate word counts. Use Word heading styles to create a hierarchical outline.
  • Come up with a theory that you seek to prove/disprove. Look for patterns to explain and extrapolate. Weigh up the evidence and come to conclusions.
