Note Taking space:
Record lecture notes as fully and as meaningfully as possible. Write down what you think is most important. Don’t worry so much about using complete sentences, or having perfect grammar.
Left Margin area:
As you’re taking notes, keep this column empty. After the lecture, when you are reviewing your notes, you will use this area to reduce the notes you took during lecture to concise, short phrases. Those short phrases will serve as cues for reciting and reviewing the information. These cues will help you locate sections of your notes when you have numerous pages of material.
You should get in the habit of being able to put lecture content and concepts in your own words. Try writing two complete sentences that summarize the entire page of notes.
