Great notes can completely change the way you study. If you haven't mastered the art of taking notes in class, here are some useful tips to help you out. Soon studying will be a breeze.

How to Be a Great Note Taker

No particular class really delves deep into the art of taking notes. That is really unfortunate because the perfect set of notes is difficult to create. Great notes can make your study sessions more successful and easy. Here you'll find five simple tips to improve your note-taking techniques.
  • Pay attention to the board: Most of the time, the teacher will write key information on the board, and that's what you should be focusing on.
  • Do some research: There are plenty of note-taking methods you can try. A quick search for "note-taking methods" online will give you tons of results such as the Cornell method, the Outlining method, and the Mapping method.
  • Use key words: The time spent in class is not enough to write thorough notes. Instead, you should only write key words and work on adding more information once the class is over.
  • Your own words: The notes are for you to understand. Try to write everything down in your own words. You won't need to make sense of what you wrote later on if you write them with your own words.
  • Exchange notes: Talk to your classmates about exchanging notes. They might have information that you didn't write down, and you'll get new ideas to work on.
