PQRST method

Don't worry - this one isn't as hard as it sounds!

0
The PQRST technique helps you to study and remember chapters or sections of information. P is for Preview, Q for Question, R for Read, S for State, and T for Test.

To memorise a section of work you should first preview the work by scanning through it to gain an estimate of the content.

Next, formulate questions for yourself on the work. These are questions that you feel should be answerable after you have read the work. Now read the work with all your attention and concentration.

State the work to yourself by summarising the main points.

Lastly, test your knowledge by answering the questions that you formulated for yourself.

Written by Dr Frans Hugo, MBChB, M.Med Psychiatry and Dr L. Van Wyk, MBChB, M. Med (Psych) from the Panorama Memory Clinic.
