TEN BASIC STEPS OF TAKING GOOD NOTES.


Taking notes during lectures is a good habit. When properly applied, it enables the listener to concentrate more intensely on the unfolding of the speakers ideas and to preserve those points significant points that might easily have slipped from memory.

 


These are ten basic steps to good note-making.📝

1. don't write down everything that you read or hear. Be alert and attentive to the main point concentrate on the meat of the subject and forget the trimmings.


2. Note should consist of keywords or very short sentence. As a speaker get sidetracked you can go back and and further information.


3. Take accurate notes you should usually use your own words but try not to change meaning. If you quote directly from the Author, quote correctly.


4. Think a minute about your material before you start making notes. Don't take note just to be taking notes. Take note that will be of real value to you when you look over them later.


5. Have a uniform system of punctuation and abbreviation that will make sense to you. Use a skeleton outline, and  show importance by indenting. Leave lots of wide space for later editions.


6. Omit descriptions and full explanation. Keep your note short and to-the-point. Condense your materials so you can grasp it rapidly.


7. Don't worry about missing a point. Leave space and try to pick up the material you miss at a later date either through Reading, questioning or common sense.


8. don't keep notes on oddly shape pieces of paper. Keep notes in order and in one place.


9. Shortly after making your note go back and rework (not recopy) your  notes by adding extra points, spelling out unclear items etc. Remember we forget quickly. Budget time for this vital step just as you do for the class itself.


10. review your note periodically.  This is the only way to achieve lasting memory.
