Even More Tips For Note Taking in Lectures

Here are more of The Fife & Tayside Wider Access Forum's top tips on Note making in Lectures.

EIGHT: REVIEW YOUR NOTES. After the lecture review your notes:
  • ·        Combine the notes from the previous reading materials with the notes you have made during the lecture
  • ·        Keep one set of good notes
  • ·        File other notes away.
Combining your notes is not copying your notes – by having a set of ‘complete’ notes you will have notes that make sense when you retrieve them later.

Reviewing your notes also helps helps to move information from short-term memory into long-term memory.

You are also starting to revise for assignments, essays and exams.

NINE: SHARE NOTES. Share notes with others in your class.
You may have something important in your notes that others may not have and vice versa.

The more you practise the move skilled you will become. The more you practise the faster you will become at making notes.
