Note-taking is not one-size fits all. Use different systems methods based on your classes and learning style.
This section will teach you 4 note taking systems:
Test each one out in your classes and see how they work for you!
For visual learners, mind mapping helps create a spider web of information
Cornering the Cornell System: Leave space in your lecture notes to create more specific points or ideas. This style tends to split your page in half: the notes you took in class, and the analyzing you complete later.
Outstanding Outlines: Create a written outline of what you have learned and what is important
Creating Charts: This method works best for subjects that can be broken down it to categories (like similarities/differences, date/event/impact, pros/cons, etc). Consider this method for date-heavy history classes and lab-specific science classes.
Use columns to divide up your information into appropriate locations.
This is an active strategy that works with each note taking system:
