"I wish Id learned to do
this in high school." It's an often heard
comment from students on any college campus.
Unlike many of your high school
courses, where teachers routinely gave you study
sheets containing virtually all of the important
information from a lecture, college professors expect
you to follow a rapidly developing train of thought
and to capture those thoughts in your own notes.
Therefore, so it is in your best interest to develop
good note-taking skills as quickly as possible. The
notes you take in biology lecture should
. . .
- Capture the main points of a
lecture, including relevant examples.
- Be organized in some coherent
manner for later study.
- Leave room to include
additional information learned after lecture.
- Use a personalized shorthand
notation that makes sense to you.
Your biology lecture notes should not.
Attempt to record every word the
professor says during a lecture.
Simply be what the professor writes
on the blackboard or overhead.
