Default Highlighting First Aid

Does anyone have a creative highlighting method they would like to share? It's kind of boring to see yellow page after yellow page, kind of defeats the purpose of highlighting. Best of luck!

Color coding! One for regular highlighting, other for high-yield stuff, other for forgettable ****, other for diagnostic tests, etc.

Not only you'll see less yellow, but will be easier to find something quickly also.

Let your inner Van Gogh flow

Best,

I used yellow for stuff I got on Qbanks, green for stuff I got on Self Assessments (NBMA, UWSA, etc) and orange for things I found interesting or thought they were important.
