Do you want to learn how to take good notes?
Practice makes perfect!
Learning your professor's teaching style
Most teachers speak more quickly than note-takers write their notes.
for the purposes of emphasizing them for smart students.
Other teachers will offer a series of examples to help you understand new ideas.
Read the assigned readings before the lecture
Read the chapter before class and take enough notes or outline it.
After class is over, check to make your chapter notes better.
Real learning happens after you are home comparing your chapter notes to the lecture notes.
Review your notes regularly and cumulatively
Look for repetition and relationships of different lectures.
It helps you "see the big picture" and makes note-taking a regular part of your study habits.
