The summary is a short text in which you gather all the important information around a topic. You have to be clear that a summary is not an essay or a publication in which your imagination can go crazy, but you have to transmit the information of another text in an abbreviated form, reproducing only the main ideas and leaving out the unnecessary information.
The summary serves to quickly review and revise at a glance all the information. It is a small synthesis that often helps us to better understand the totality of the subject we are studying. We should not get confused and think that because it is a synthesis it is an incomplete text, when far from reality. We must know that in all its extension are compressed the most significant and relevant points of the subject or original text that we want to summarize.
Summaries are great study tools for anyone currently in academic circles. It’s an ace up our sleeve that we can use to help us study a topic or text way more effectively.
