Effective Note Taking
From Jeff Layne
CSU, Chico School of Nursing Student
Ms. Ridgell shares with her fellow students the importance of taking good notes; notes that assist in providing clarity, easy access to specific topics, and productive study methods. She discusses and shows examples of different note-taking methods, including outline, Venn diagram, and the Cornell method. She also shares examples of note-taking software. Ms. Ridgell recommends that students choose the note-taking style that fits their learning style. She also recommends that students review their notes as soon after class as possible and, if there is something that they don’t understand, go to the professor to ask questions.
