Tips for note-taking Use a 3 ring binder & one side of each page only Label, number and date your notes Leave blank space Use a tape recorder Takes notes in different colors
Tips on What to Write When your professor repeats something more than once, write it down. When your professor writes it on the board, write it down. If your professor asks you to copy from the board, copy every word. If your professor gives handouts with questions, try to answer the questions from his lecture. Write down what you believe is the main topic, and his main idea in speaking.
