Note taking:


Summarizing and note taking are skills used to reduce large amounts of information into a synthesized form for later use. It’s mainly about understanding or conceptualizing and recalling in time.

Sources of note:

  1. Written source
  2. Oral source
  3. After event

General note- taking Skill:

  • Listen actively – if possible think before you write – but don’t get behind.
  • Be open-minded about points you disagree on.
  • Raise questions if appropriate.
  • Develop and use a standard method of note-taking including punctuation, abbreviations, margins, etc.
  • Leave a few spaces blank as you move from one point to the next so that you can fill in additional points later if necessary. Your objective is to take helpful notes, not to save paper.
  • Do not try to take down everything that the lecturer says. It is impossible in the first place and unnecessary in the second place because not everything is of equal importance.
  • Many lecturers attempt to present a few major points and several minor points in a lecture. Try to see the main points and do not get lost in a barrage of minor points
  • Sit as close to the front of the class, there are fewer distractions and it is easier to hear, see and attend to important material.
  • Get assignments and suggestions precisely – ask questions if you’re not sure.
