Notebooks and pens are the tools students use to capture the material they go over in class in the form of notes. As you know, these can be very handy when tests come around, but only if they were taken effectively. To learn how to take notes that will help your academic efforts, continue reading.

How to Take Notes that Will Help You Study

  1. First of all, keep your notes cleaned and organized so they're easier to study from. This includes avoiding doodling on them and having a notebook for each subject (and using it accordingly).
  2. In the classroom, make sure you have your writing tools ready, so you don't have to fall behind searching for your supplies when the teacher imparting class.
  3. If you want to be efficient, you will have to create a writing strategy. Instead of writing everything on the blackboard, write down the main ideas. Likewise, use common abbreviations.
  4. The key to taking good notes is making them understandable (i.e. writing complete ideas in legible penmanship), so you can actually use them to study.
  5. Of course, there is certain information that needs to stand out (such as dates, names, formulas, etc.), which is why you should use highlighters so they don't get lost with the rest of the notes.
  6. Lastly, once you're done taking notes, be sure to review them to find out if something isn't clear or if you missed information. You can ask the teacher or a peer to explain so your notes can be complete.
