The Best Way to Take Notes As a Student

Image result for note taking

 

There are many different ways of taking notes in school or at the university. Some prefer to take a structured approach and use an outline method to take notes, some may prefer a visual way and draw mind maps, some may even use no structure at all. However, there is one note taking technique that is superior to others in many cases and science has proven that it is not only more efficient but also makes it a lot easier to review notes, for example when preparing for an exam.

The technique we‘re referring to is called “Cornell Note Taking”. It is a system for taking, organizing and reviewing notes and has been devised by Prof. Walter Pauk of Cornell University in the 1950s.

How to use it
It requires very few preparation work which makes it ideal for note taking in class. The page will be divided into 4 - or sometimes only 3 - different sections: Two columns, one area at the bottom of the page, and one smaller area at the top of the page.
