Generating special Study Mind Maps

Now suppose that you’re a student and want to prepare for a course examination. Every week you’ve made copious notes and drawn Mind Maps in your lectures and have also noted down the texts you need to read.

In this example you’ll have drawn at least two Mind Maps during each week of the course, one in a lecture and another while reading books.

You can now use the written records already in your possession to generate so-called Study Mind Maps, which are actually a further summary of the various Mind-Map records you’ve already prepared. To generate a Study Mind Map, work through your existing Mind Maps again and from them make a kind of ‘distillate’ containing the most important information in a way that makes sense to you.
