Jamie, an English literature student, was tasked with completing a literature review for his dissertation. Because of his dyslexia, Jamie’s biggest challenge was his working memory and often forgot where he had read research to use within his work. He was able to use Pro-Study from the beginning of his research process to organise his work and could keep track of everything he had read by bookmarking and categorising all of his literature. All of the quotes he had read were easily accessible after exporting to a Word document along with a complete bibliography. This meant he could spend more time getting on with writing his dissertation and not worrying about his referencing.

Here is what Jamie had to say…

“In my final year, I had to complete a literature review for my dissertation. My dyslexia impacts my working memory and I often forget where I’ve read quotes to add to my work. Using Pro-Study allowed me to categorise everything I’d read, right from the initial research stage all the way through to referencing. Having everything easily accessible in a Word document alongside a completed bibliography definitely took out the stress of writing and it is so easy to use.”

Charlotte’s Biology course involves a number of exams at the end of the year, but often the amount of revision often becomes overwhelming. Charlotte uses Pro-Study to set up different projects for each exam, colour coding into different topic areas. She highlights the most important parts of her lecture notes, takes quotes from online journal articles and captures diagrams from her textbooks to have one central database to store all of the most relevant information she needs to revise.

Here is what Charlotte had to say…

“Exams have always caused me anxiety and stress, and I used to feel there was just too much information to process when revising. Now I feel much more organised by using Pro-Study to set up different projects for each exam, colour coding into different topic areas. I highlight the most important part of my lecture notes, take quotes from online journal articles and capture diagrams from my textbooks to have one central database to store all of the most relevant information I need to revise. The ease of which I can then find and recall the sources by just a click of a button has saved me the nightmare of finding an article and then losing it. Pro-Study really is the most useful thing available to me right now”
