Study Habit #7 Take Great Notes
Do you find yourself struggling with taking good notes? It’s important that you develop your note-taking skills so that, when you review them, they are beneficial and will help you study and remember important information.
Remember that you don’t need to take notes of everything! Only write down what is important; if the teacher keeps repeating something or has written something down then, you should take note of this.
Your note-taking style might also depend on your learning style like we mentioned above. Perhaps you might need to draw little diagrams in your notes if you are more of a visual learner. If you are an auditory learner, you might learn better if you audio-record the class discussions and lectures and then listen to them over again to help you study. The definition of a good study routine is, after all, one that works with your specific quirks and personality.
Another fun way to remember things is to use mnemonics for better memory recall. For any type of list, steps, stages or parts you can use mnemonic devices to help you retain information. Mnemonic types include: music, name, expression, rhyme, spelling and more.
