LC Module: Notetaking Repair and Maintenance

"Without explicit instruction in note taking, however, many students simply write down words or phrases word for word, without analysis (or good effect). Successful note-takers summarize to arrive at a nugget of meaning, which they are much more likely to retain.” (NREL, 2005)
“Memory fades quickly. No matter which note-taking format you use, it’s a very good idea to review and refine your notes as soon as you can after class. It’s best not to wait more than 24 hours, because your memory of the ideas presented has weakened considerably after that time. Testing yourself is a good way to check to see if you really understand the important points of the lecture—and if you don’t understand them, to confer with a teacher or a classmate to sort out the information.” (Nazareth College, 2011)
