How good your notes are can influence the outcome of your study sessions. If you want to take notes that will actually help you learn and get ready for your tests, continue reading the post below.

How to Take Notes That Will Help You Study

  1. The first thing is to have cleaned and organized notebooks. To that end, use a different notebook for each subject and add a date and title to each of the lessons you take notes on.
  2. How will you be able to take notes if you don't have your writing tools with you? Make sure that your pencils, pens, erasers, and whatever else you need, is ready to go when taking notes.
  3. It's important that you work out a writing strategy so that you don't try to write down every word the teacher utters. For example, you should focus on the main ideas.
  4. Of course, you should be able to understand your notes so you can study effectively. This is why you should make them coherent and legible, so you're not confused or waste time deciphering them.
  5. If there's certain information that you want to emphasize on your notes (like names and dates), you should use colored pens or highlighters to make them stand out.
  6. Finally, be sure to review your notes. This way, you can find areas that aren't clear. If upon your review, certain questions arise, turn to your peers and teachers so you can complete your notes.
