Hi MyLotters, Everyone of us has passed through school days.What you have done with the books?Do you cram up the whole book so that you end up making a good score at exams or try to understand so that you could pass the knowledge on to your next generation?Let me know from you,dear. Thanks, Happy MyLotting!!

Back In High school. I really do study hard. I memorized the things that I read word for word to avoid more mistakes. I think that it really helps to study. You don't have to look at somebody else's place just to get answers. I'm the type that gives rather than receive.

I'm never tried to memorize the contents of textbook but I always try to understand it ... I think stuffing the brain with a book that works only work of vain because our brain memory is limited, it is better we try to understand because the brain will continue to keep it

Well, if it's about mathematics or physics then yes, I try to understand the principles of doing the operations so I can use this knowledge to perform different calculations on my own. I memorize only the basic formulas I need to perform these operations, usually other formulas can be derived from basic ones. If it's history or something similar, then I try to get into the topic, so I know, what has happened and why and then it's easy to remember all the sequence of occasions. It seems that I'm really into understanding the topic and not just mugging it up.
