As a student, your notes are one of the most valuable tools you have in order to study for your exams, and to learn effectively. This is why it's crucial that you learn take good notes that will actually help you study successfully. For a few tips on the matter, continue reading the post below.

How to Improve Your Notes

  1. Organization and cleanliness can make a huge difference in your notes. Write the notes for each subject on its own notebook, and avoid doodling, so you have notes that will help you study.
  2. If you have trouble keeping up with your teacher during class, have your writing tools ready (such as your pencil, eraser, sharpener, etc.), so you can start taking notes without wasting time.
  3. Tied up to the point above, you can also employ strategies to avoid falling behind. For example, write down what's on the blackboard, and use common abbreviations to save time.
  4. If you want your notes to serve their purpose, write properly. This means using complete sentences and writing in your best penmanship so you can actually understand your notes.
  5. It's probable that certain information in your notes (e.g. names, definitions, dates, etc.) is more important than other. To accentuate those key pieces of information, use highlighters and colored pens.
  6. Finally, make it a point to proofread your notes after you're done taking them. This will help ensure that you understood everything. If you didn't, ask the teacher or a peer to explain.
