Take your notes by hand whenever possible

Hand-writing notes forces you to think critically on the fly, deciding in the moment what key concepts you need to jot down, since it takes longer than typing what you’re hearing.

nd-writing makes you listen more attentively and prioritize only the most important elements of what the presenter is saying.

Revise your notes immediately after class or a meeting

While the content is fresh in your mind, you should go back through the notes and condense them, pulling out key words and concepts and using supplemental materials like a textbook or presentation slides to add in anything you originally missed.

This helps with committing the information to memory.
