If you're a student who employs highlighters to study, read the post below to learn how to do so effectively.

How to Study with a Highlighter

Don't Rely on Just Highlighting

While highlighters are a pretty basic school supply, this doesn't mean that you should put your whole trust in them. This is because they are only meant to be used as a study aid, not a study method. They can work great, for example, when you are taking notes.

Make Use of Different Colors

Highlighters come in a variety of colors (pink, yellow, green, purple, orange, blue, etc.). This could work to your advantage, as you could assign a color of highlighter to emphasize a type of information (e.g. green for definitions) and identify and recall notes better.

Use Them to Highlight

Highlighters can be viewed as writing tools. However, you shouldn't use them as such. This is because writing or doodling with them will leave you with a page full of brightly colored scribbles that could easily distract you when you're studying.

Highlight Carefully

Lastly, remember that when you highlight everything, nothing stands out. This means that, to use your highlighter effectively, you should only emphasize the truly important information. To that end, it is recommended that you highlight only after you've read the text a couple of times.
