Learning scientific studies through careful highlighting

From Andrew Bihl:

In my experience, much of learning technical information comes down to drawing categories and relationships. I’ve found while reading that by highlighting statements according to their purpose, I can more quickly understand the information being presented. It also helps me stay focused and see which statements I didn’t comprehend on first pass. I assign statements to one of five functions:

  • points

  • limitation

  • evidence

  • value

  • background
