Having effective notes can make a world of a difference during your study sessions. To become a better note-taker over your summer break, read and follow the tips mentioned in the post below.

How to Take Notes That Will Help You Study

  1. The first step is to keep your notebooks clean and organized. To that end, avoid doodling in them, so that the drawings won't distract you. Also, have one notebook for each subject, so you don't mix your lessons.
  2. It's important that you have your writing tools within arm's reach. This way, you'll be able to grab your pencil, pen, eraser, sharpener, and other, and start writing right away.
  3. Being efficient with your time is crucial when you're writing notes, so you don't fall behind. That's why, you should have a writing strategy (such as using common abbreviations and writing down main ideas) that will help you take good notes and save time.
  4. If you want your notes to help you study, make sure you understand them. Write in legible penmanship and in complete ideas to guarantee  you won't spend time decoding your notes when studying.
  5. As you take notes, be sure to have your highlighter with you. This way, you can make the more important information stand out from the rest (for example, names, dates, definitions, and formulas).
  6. As a last tip, review after you're done taking them. This way, you can guarantee that they're good, complete notes that you can understand, If they aren't fix them.
