While reading, take notes, using your own words; do not simply copy the words of the author. Usually re-reading is necessary to get the gist.
While reading, write your notes in the margins of the text. If you need to sell back your book, write softly in pencil and erase it later.
After reading, think about what you've read by considering how it applies. What does it all mean? What implications does it have? How does it inform your thinking about an upcoming test or assignment?
