Note taking and in-class skills

Note Taking
Melissa Fair, College Sophomore

Some of the items listed on the site were a review from the text book reading, but the tips that were new is what stood out and helped even more. For example, having a pen and notebook ready to use as soon as the teacher starts talking and continuing note taking through the entire class to stay focused and take in more information.

Also, the tip about being open minded even about topics I don't agree with because arguing can interfere with note taking and cause loss of focus. I liked this site for pointing out that you do not need to copy down every single thing, but do copy all the scribble marks and topics from the blackboard as they could be found on an exam. This site has good tips in general for note taking.

I like how this article stressed the idea to be open minded to points of view the note taker might have originally been closed minded to. In addition I thoroughly enjoyed when i read that neatness is ideal but does not increase you ability to learn. I got a good kick out of that.

I found the key points in this article very helpful to my current note taking skills. For example, currently I try to write everything down that the instructor says and had no idea that was not a good note taking habit.
