Study Tips: In Class


Next in my study tips series is how to take better notes. What you do in class in the foundation of all your learning and studying. If you don't take good notes, it is extremely difficult to study properly. So here are a few tips that I find work and help me take the best notes!


I mentioned this one in my study tips for the semester post because I think it is that important. I just believe it helps you remember things better. But if you have to type, don't freak out this one isn't a biggie.


If your professor draws something out while doing notes then copy down that drawing. Whether it's a table or a graph make sure to put it in your notes. You may think you'll remember it, but that usually isn't the case.


Many professors use Power Points as an aid to their lecture. It is not the only important information. I'm not saying don't write it down, just remember to write down what he or she is saying as well. And if your professor puts the Power Points online then maybe print them out, that way you don't have to write that stuff down you can focus solely on their explanations of the presentation.


I have learned that many times professors will give an example in class to help the class understand, then later they put that same example on the test. Granted this may not always be the case, but the example will still help you understand. It will help you put definitions in context and truly understand the concepts.


When you are confused ask a question. If you don't want to ask it in front of everyone then just go ask your professor after class. It is better to ask as soon as possible rather than wait and get even more confused.


If your professor mentions the same thing over and over there is a reason. Make sure to take note of what has been mentioned several times, because those are the things that are often on the test.

Well I hope you keep these in mind while you're in class and feel free to tell me if they help or if you have any other tips that I missed tell me those too!
