About Note Taking

Note taking helps you prepare for tests, and helps you better understand the material you are learning. However, note taking can create a challenge. The two most common mistakes students make are they either take too many notes or not enough; an appropriate balance is important particularly given where the major source information is in that course. tmstudent

Types of note taking

There are two types of notes: comprehensive and Skeletal. Comprehensive notes have detail. They do not contain just the information that the professor put on the board, overhead or include in the power point notes. Comprehensive notes have the major points, significant details and examples. The notes provide the same completeness on the topic as the professor provides in the class. Comprehensive notes are usually taken when the class is primarily lecture dependent. Skeletal notes are briefer and more concise. They may only have key points, or examples, or information from the overhead with some explanation. The assumption with skeletal notes is that it is a text dependent class and you are using notes just to record the topics that the professor thinks is important as well as those topics that are difficult for you to understand.
