Keep you active while reading and listening! The active mind learns…..and the mind that learns, thrives! Notes…….
1. Don't write everything down that you read or hear. Be alert and attentive to the main points. 2. Notes should consist of key words or very short sentences. 3. Don't take notes just to be taking notes! Take notes that will be of real value to you when you look over them again later. 4. Don't worry about missing a point. 5. Shortly after making your notes, go back and rework (not redo) your notes by adding extra points and spelling out unclear items. Write questions that you want to ask the next day! 6. Review your notes regularly. This is the only way to achieve lasting memory.

Label each heading and subheading to be used in conjunction with an outline system of note taking. 4. Underlining is the least helpful, highlighting for that matter is too! 5. Summarize in the bottom margin the significant ideas on that page. 6. Review notes immediately after completing the reading.
