I have a PDF with around 500 pages I have to learn and partly memorize. There are pages with just photos, some definitions, examples, etc. Is there a /sci/ aproved way to learn? Should I write all the things I have to memorize on cards (which costs time) or learn directly out of the PDF?
Also because I'm a lazyfag I only have a few days left to learn that shit.

>pic not related but how the pages kind of look like

If you have any exams from previous years do those

Definitely gonna do that, thanks

Group the cards into clusters, connect the clusters. Try to find dichtonomies, or barymetric relations. Thus it becomes easier to memorize
>>
Get a program that takes screenshots of specified boxes on the screen and saves them in filenames with a question-answer pair format. Or, if the program saves screenshots in an index like screenshot1.png, screenshot2.png, etc you should know that every odd number will be a question and every even number will be an answer.

Then just pair them on Anki.

You're welcome.

Also, keep in mind there are limitations and inefficiencies involved in rote memorization as a method of learning, but for a lot of stuff it's unavoidable.

Thanks!

Oh perfect, have not thought about that. I will try that.

>>7839259
Also this. If there's opposite cases of something, if you remember one you don't even have to remember the other

you are a shitty note taker, thats your problem.

you have two notebooks, one is for just barfing material into, the other is a master codex you carry around that you condense important course material into.

you carry this little book everywhere, and whenever you have 5 minutes in line, or 10 minutes on the toilet, you read a few pages.

do this throughout the day, and you get a legit 2+ hours of study time a day, without feeling like you sat down to study at all.

Just a simple yet useful tip
If you try to take in too much by just reading through it, you'll end up with next to jackshit, you'd be better reading in short bursts desu
>>
>>7839309
that's not bad.. how big are your notebooks?
>>

i use E3 paper for bulk notes and a 8x5 100 pager for condensed notes.
