Learning and Preparing for Exams with Mind Mapping
In This Chapter
Learning a technique in four steps
Study Mind Maps specially for pupils and students
Many books on learning strategies and techniques describe Mind Mapping as a visual learning technique. In fact, generating and structuring Mind Maps can be useful when you prepare for exams too.

It makes memorising and retaining information easier.
It helps you to understand content and identify connections better.
This is achieved mainly by the graphic form of Mind Maps and the highly individual nature of the technique, involving the use of key words and visual elements.

You must always have the same source material to hand in order to find the information you need.
