Taking notes is an integral part of being a student. However, not every student takes effective notes. To make sure you take notes that will allow you reinforce the information you learned in class, read and follow the tips in the post below.

How to Take Notes that Will Help You Study

  1. You need to start with a clean, organized slate. That's why it's important that you have one notebook/folder for each of your subjects to avoid mixing them up. Also, don't doodle on them, since that may confuse you.
  2. You can't write if you don't have the tools, can you? So, if you want to have good notes, make sure that your writing tools (pencil, eraser, pens, etc.), are there, ready to be used.
  3. Since time is of the essence, you should create a writing strategy that can keep you from falling behind. Abbreviations and noting down the main ideas may help in this respect.
  4. You need your notes to study so, needless to say, you need to be able to understand them. To make that easier for you, care for your penmanship and write down complete ideas instead of random words.
  5. To keep important information (e.g. dates and names) from getting lost among your other notes, use highlighters or colored pens to emphasize them.
  6. Finally, before you close your notebook, remember to review your notes to ensure they're complete. If you missed information or didn't understand something, turn to your teacher or a peer.
