So, I am looking for CARS tips when reading a passage for getting all of the main ideas with each paragraph. I have reviewed a number of CARS strategies on SDN, but still have trouble with reflecting on all the main ideas after reading a paragraph (especially since there is so much to remember by the end of the passage). I'll often remember 2/3 of the main points, but then will get a question regarding that last main point. What has helped people remember each of the main points of each paragraph, especially after completing a very long, dense, abstract passage? How do you extract the main idea from paragraphs where there will be a sentence (i.e. philosophy) that seems like a huge run-on and makes no sense? For example, I tried mapping, but summarizing paragraphs into two to three words, actually makes me overgeneralize a paragraph and not factor in some of the main points. Lastly, could someone comment on timing, since it can take time to reflect on each paragraph (as well as with other strategies, such as highlighting and mapping)?
