If you want to do a REALLY good job in class this
year, write down what you hear in class -- especially about important assignments
-- and then type these notes up later (if you have time). It REALLY helps
me a lot in all of my classes.
When I was in school, we all took notes all the
time. It helped me a lot. It also helps later, before quizzes or tests when
you are in college. Your future college professors will expect you to be able
to take these kind of notes, so it’s good to practice at it.
I will try to post a “How to Take Good Notes”
flyer on the class website to have it available when you next go to the computer
lab or library computer area. Also check to see if there is a “How to be Organized”
area on the Study Hints site.
IMPORTANT: You can raise your grade at least one
grade point (from a C to a B, from a B to an A) by following the notetaking
guidelines and knowing about your personal Learning Style. Good luck!
