Note-Taking: The Real Use

  • Badly taken notes easily become redundant and useless.
  • Real and useful note-taking is when we note down the names and brief explanations of new concepts, like author names, references, theoretical names and concepts, instead of copying everything on the slide.
  • It is great to write down the questions that come in our minds, something which is often neglected.
  • Colored or coded notes, that are marked in different shapes or blocks help ease the looking up part later, and also while studying for an exam.
  • One can also use the phone recorder to help in note-taking.
