I’ve never really used mind maps as a down right study tool , but the idea has started to grow on me lately after reading about it in a self-help book on effective study techniques (don’t remember the name of the book unfortunatelly).
I decided to google on further ideas on mind maps and came across this free online tool that lets you draw mind maps on the computer. I’ve just given it a quick test but it seems pretty darn great! It even lets you save your mind maps as PDFs.
Check it out here.
