I worked through a bunch of the study guide exercises for the first chapter of the main textbook and found that really helpful. I hand wrote my answers and it definitely helps it stick in my brain. I think hand written notes might work best for me.

I try to study when I minimal distractions, like when the kids are watching a movie.. OR tv, or when they are asleep. I like to study very intensely or I just don't see the point of doing little bits here, that's just me. Before I start, I know exactly how long I have to study, and I test my brain using sudoku square to get my head in the right mindset for studying. As the session progresses I would like to pick up some more referencing skills, I'm just learning all the base work for now from the textbook and after that I watch the lecture slides for each topic (after I finish the topic that I was reading in the textbook). This helps me to summarise everything that I have just read. I also find that explaining things to someone else, like my kids is also helpful, English is my second language and sometimes I get muddled up with my sentences. I also find that actively looking for other resources and drawing conclusions to the main topics from all kinds of resources, is great. I listen to business podcasts, the course that I am doing is about business. It helps me to feel like I am actively studying and learning when I am cleaning, and gives me lots of ideas and knowledge and experiences aswell.

I love sharing ideas, and I feel that people can the learn the best way to study by actually studying together, it would be great to get a study group going where people can share ideas and notes on say APA referencing. I don't know, we can all learn from each other. If not then it's still is pretty cool to be able to support each other

I use an ever note for my summaries of main points, and Web quests.
This is synced with my phone, ipad, laptop comp. Anywhere.
My textbook is in eBook format and I can access it through my phone, I guess I am very digital, but I freak out about my textbook getting water spilt on it like my last one did.. OR losing notes, or the computer crashing. I have it all online the downside is not being able to write very fast, because I type more, but I figured that practising writing on paper before an exam would fix that.

I just keep on posting...
I just wabted to add that setting a reasonable goal within a time frame is great. Say for example, you have so many pages to read from the textbook, if yoy have around 2 hours a day (I can only achieve this time with a tv babysitter and movie, and all my other household and kids learning activities done)..... you can aim to read at least half of the chapter that you need to read, that sounds very achievable doesn't it? Once you finish that anything else is just a bonus. Or you could study at 3 in the morning like me. Lol

Lol, no I think I'll be sleeping at 3am!
I think I've found a nice groove with study (although we're on a break now and i'm a bit ahead so I'm giving myself a week or two off!).
