First things first: Create a book for that class
This is an obvious step. Some people like writing the name of the class (exam. organic chemistry) I prefer writing the code of the class as sometimes they have a long name ( FARMA2220 for Pharmacology and Physiology 1).
Organise your book according to subject
For this particular class, I am having right now, there are three books I have to get through. So I decided to divide the notes based on book and class notes.
On top of the three books, this class is divided into five themes that cover different chapters. So far I am done with one theme, and will start my second next week. I like classifying my notes in themes too:
Use OneNote wisely to take notes
When in class, add the lecturers’ pdf file for more effective note writing, and always remember to record your class. OneNote conveniently has a button made just for this.
When taking notes from your textbook, make sure you highlight and add important figures to illustrate your point:
Taking notes is a personal thing, you need to try many different methods to find the right one for you. This is the methods that work best for me.
Have fun. Stay Curious.
