A simple way to avoid you lost while doing literature review

A research study will require student to do "literature review". Based on Fink (2005), “a research literature review is a systematic, explicit, comprehensive, and reproducible method for identifying, evaluating, and synthesizing the existing body of original completed and recorded work produced by researchers, scholars, and practitioners.” 


The purpose of the literature review chapter is to assemble information on the research study pertaining to design the research, variables, stands for the research problems, and review of current information related to the research area for further understanding.

However, it is a common problem of student to stark or lost track while readings. all the readings information seems relevant and important for the review chapter. until somehow don't know which one to select while the times is running out... 

until sometimes it cause you stress...sudden blurrryy... and blank...and most dangerous...stop readings and writing...please avoid from stop reading and writing because you will loose some idea (forgot) all materials that you have already read. this will lead to readings again the similar materials due to forget...

a simple way to guide you assemble the information that only relevant to your research study is by preparing just a piece of paper that contain your research title, your research questions and your research objectives. this paper u can USE as ur reminder... MAKE SURE EVERYDAY U READ THIS PIECE OF PAPER. Below is the sample of the notes.
