Improve your memory

Are you drowning in all the facts, figures and theories you need to memorise? Don’t panic, iMindMap can help improve your comprehension, whatever the subject. The traditional method of copying out revision notes is bland and uninspiring. Switching to Mind Mapping allows you to unlock a whole world of visual thinking – and the benefits don’t end there. Mind Mapping techniques have been linked to improved memory – making storing those all important nuggets of revision easier than ever. To start your revision journey, use Mind Map View – from here you can create a central idea (the subject area you’re revising would be a good start) and begin adding child branches. By using keywords and images, you can break down facts and make it far easier to recall important information. The trick is to move through topics, going from the broad to the more specific – and don’t worry, with iMindMap’s unlimited canvas you’ll never run out of space. Don’t forget to add images, icons and emojis to enhance your visual learning and make all-important memory associations.

Organise your ideas

Sitting down to revise often feels overwhelming. With so much to learn, where should you start? Breaking your work into manageable chunks is key to making progress. If you’re juggling multiple subjects and modules it’s important you keep your priorities clear. Starting work without direction leads to time wasted on menial tasks, while the more important areas end up being neglected. Use iMindMap’s Org. Chart View to outline your revision and streamline your workload. By creating a revision workflow, you can easily create an intuitive breakdown of the tasks you need to do for each subject. The hierarchical top-down structure will make tracing back through your ideas super easy. Your priorities can be seen at a glance, making working through your revision in the right order as simple as possible. This view is also a great tool for planning essays, as you can move from your thesis statement through to your natural conclusion with logic and structure.

Dodge revision boredom

Boredom may feel like a natural by-product of revision – but, when working in iMindMap, it need not be. Many of us know the path from boredom to procrastination all too well. Keeping your brain engaged is a must if you want to make the most of your revision time. Here at iMindMap, we suggest using Radial Map View to stimulate the visual side of your brain. By breaking interlinking ideas into colour-coded rings and easy-to-digest nodes you are able to add meaning to large amounts of information. All whilst being able to see a birdseye view of your revision, so your central goals never get lost.

Another great way to avoid boredom is to get active with your revision. Multiple studies have found that one of the most effective ways to retain knowledge is actually to teach someone else. With a fellow student, take it in turns using iMindMap’s Presentation View to teach each other and you’ll both be as prepared as possible for the exams which lie ahead.
