Visual Learner or not, mindmaps can be a great way to write out notes or revise. Personally I use mindmaps to revise notes for an exam! Mindmaps can sometimes be confusing to make, so let me lay it out in a few steps:
are my faves!
- Markers/Highlighters –Sharpie Markers (although they do bleed!)
- Keep it Simple
- Stick to Bullet Points
- Have 3 Main Colours
- Space it out
- Include diagrams if you need
- Include post-it notes for extra information
The layout I usually follow:
Usually my bullet points would go under each title.
Try to keep it as neat as possible! It will make it easier to study.
- If you dislike writing on blank paper, place lined paper behind the sheet when you’re writing so you can see the lines and keep your writing straight.
- If you’re a visual learner, include more diagrams, perhaps even use them instead of Titles.
- If you’re using Sharpies, place a blank page behind so it won’t bleed onto the next page or onto the table
- When you’re not directly studying one of your mindmaps, stick them up around you! You’ll look at them and learn from them without realising.
- Cover them up and test yourself on them
- They’re perfect for last minute prep before an exam
- You can read over them to refresh your memory
