- If the instructor writes something on the whiteboard, overhead, or repeats an idea, then it is usually a key point and you should write it down.
- Try to use a three-ring binder or a laptop, it allows for more flexibility in rearranging your notes.
- Try to sit towards the front and center of the class where you’ll be less distracted and can hear the professor the best and have a good angle on any visual aids that may be shown.
- Don’t rely on someone else’s notes, you may not understand everything that they write down and you’ll learn the best by taking your own notes.
- Compare notes with a classmate to make sure you didn’t miss any important points. Date your notes. Add titles and subtitles when you move onto a new topic for easy referencing.
