Note Taking is for Sissies!

All information is taken from “How to Study” by Kenneth E. Standley


Why should I take notes? I can remember just as much if I listen carefully!

False!

  • Studies have shown that…

  • In 15 minutes you will forget 50% of what you heard in class.

  • After 24 hours, you will have forgotten more than 60%

  • After 2 weeks, you will have forgotten 80%!


It would be better if I just tape recorded what teachers say in class!

False!

  • Studies have shown that fewer than 7% of students ever listen to lessons recorded on tape.

  • As well, if you rely on a tape recorder in class, you will not listen or pay attention to what is being said.


Taking notes will interfere with my listening! in class!

False!

  • Studies have shown that that students who take notes in class score higher on tests.

  • As well, students’ long term memory was improved.

  • Students who take notes and study them just once a week can recall as much as 90% more of a lecture after 6 weeks than students who do not take notes.


A spiral notebook is the best thing to use to take notes in class!

False!

  • A three-ring binder helps you organize your notes.

  • Use the front side of paper only – use the back for additional notes.

  • A binder allows you to add handouts and assignments.


It’s best if I retype my notes while studying. class!

False!

  • Actually this makes your studying more difficult as you’re trying to concentrate on two activities at the same time.


 I’ll just write down the main ideas – that’s all I’ll need for tests and learning.

False!

  • You need supporting details and examples to help you learn and understand a topic.


I’m not going to read the textbook until after the class – I’ll just get bored.

False!

  • Often a lecture follows the textbook closely.

  • By reviewing the work before class, you’ll already be familiar with the material and it will be easier to follow.
