one of the benefits to highlighting key points is that?

Laws vary drastically by state and country. It is impossible for an attorney to provide legal advice or legal services on JustAnswer. What follows is neither legal advice nor a legal service and may/not apply in your particular state. What follows is general information provided for educational purposes only. No attorney-client relationship is formed. T-USA is not your attorney. No attorney-client privilege exists. Anything you write can be used in court if discovered by an opposing party.
The following information is provided for the purpose of encouraging you to seek, in person, the counsel of an attorney who is licensed to practice law in your particular state. It is essential to consult such an attorney as soon as possible.
By reading further, you understand and agree to all that is written above.



Highlighting key points in a case or in a book provides numerous benefits.
1. It allows the individual to quickly skim the material and review for relevant topics.
2. It allows the individual to segment the material to allow quick reference (especially if highlighting in different colors.
3. It helps the reader stay involved in the material.

If you need additional clarification, please ask a follow-up question and I will be happy to elaborate. Please remember that we cannot provide legal advice/services through JustAnswer.

You should consult an attorney who is licensed to practice in your state about these matters. You can find an attorney licensed to practice law in your state through your state's lawyer referral services:

One of the benefits to highlighting key points is that
A. it sorts the good idea from the bad ideas
B. You can skim, rather than read every word
c. It eliminates note taking
D. It ensures active reading
Well, a person can skim on a re-read, if not the initial read.

I think highlighting is more of a supplement to proper notetaking and that margin notes are more effective when combined with highlighting. This is particularly true when reading cases.

The rest, I agree with.
