Keeping questions with me all the time in Memo

Keeping questions with me all the time in Memo

The course was divided into four years with six or seven units per year each covering a different topic area. Each unit had an average of five questions (some units had as few as one question, or as many as 37). For example, unit 4 of year 1 discussed the development of the LCC Liturgy. Question 7 discussed the differences between liturgical expression and private devotion.

For the first year, I opened a Memo document (YEAR1.DOC) and entered all the questions sequentially, organized by units, titles and question numbers. At the beginning of each unit I would put references for the required and optional readings (course pamphlets, books, and other reference material). The screen for the beginning of a unit looked something like the one shown here:

MEMO As a Study Aid: Graphic

 I kept a pamphlet, book, or other reference material with me. When I had some spare time during the day, I'd pull out the Palmtop and press Memo. I usually kept YEAR1.DOC open in Memo, the cursor resting on the question I was working on. I'd review where I was, and start answering the question (or read from the reference material as needed).

I tended to look at the questions first, and then read the reference material with the question in mind, taking notes on the Palmtop in Memo. I would eventually get to a point where I felt I could answer the question completely, or partially. I would then answer the question, cutting and pasting material from the notes. When I was finished with the question, I would delete any leftover notes and go on to the next question.

If the home study document was not open in Memo, I used an Fn-key System Macro that would open Memo, load the home study document, and do an F4 (Find) on xx to take me to where I left off. I leave the xx characters in the document next to the question I'm working on so I can use the Find feature to quickly go to the question. I'll also leave xx in the middle of partially answered questions, with notes reminding me what I have to do to complete the question. For example, I had the following note embedded in an unfinished question: xx read pamphlet 140.001 for information on St. Thomas Aquinas xx. When I had completed an entire year I'd do an xx search to find any holes I'd left in the document.
