As a student, notes are probably one of the most important tools you have at your disposal. After all, they're one of your main study materials. For this reason, you must take good notes that will actually help you learn and study. For tips on the matter, continue reading the post below.

How to Take Notes That Will Help You Study

  1. To have clean, organized notes, you need clean, organized notebooks. For example, have a different notebook for each subject, and add a date and title on each page.
  2. Time is of the essence when you're taking note, which is why you need to have your writing tools (like your pen, pencil, eraser, etc.) ready to go at a moment's notice.
  3. Writing down every single word the teacher says is time-consuming and not effective, which is why you should have a strategy (e.g., focus on writing down the main ideas).
  4. Your notes need to be coherent and legible so that they can help you study. To that end, care for your penmanship and use complete ideas.
  5. If there's important information on your notes that you'd like to emphasize (dates, names, formulas, definitions, assignments, etc.), use a highlighter to that end.
  6. Lastly, it's suggested that you take some time to review your notes after you're done taking them. This will help you guarantee everything is clear. If you need clarification, ask your teacher so you can have complete notes.
