Part III: Note Taking Techniques > Important Notetaking Techniques

Chapter 10. Important Notetaking Techniques

Even if your instructor is a “motor mouth,” don’t despair. Stay with it until you have learned the note taking techniques presented on the next few pages.


  1. Always read your assignment before you come to class. Otherwise, the lecture may sound as if it is in Greek. BE PREPARED!

  2. Find a seat near the front of the room. Up close, you can see the board, be more aware of the instructor’s facial expressions, hear better and not daydream or snooze as easily.

  3. Identify some serious students in each class and get to know them. Get their phone numbers in case you have questions or need help during the term.

  4. Copy everything the instructor writes on the board. This is especially true of examples, solutions, outlines, and definitions.

  5. Organize and index your notes with colored tabs. If notes are allowed on any exam, you’ll be ahead of the game.
