    So I have noticed that during my A-level lessons, a lot of teachers tell us to just read our books and make notes, that or make notes from a PowerPoint :erm:. But, when anything is explained on the white board I understand it much quicker.

    Which method do you guys prefer ?

    It's less about the words on the whiteboard and more about the words spoken while the teacher writes them on the whiteboard. If that makes sense.

    I want both really. So I have all the boring notes on PowerPoint but the diagrams and explanations on the whiteboard.

    I agree with this. When you're reading notes from a powerpoint you focus on writing rather than listening. On the other hand, when teachers talk and write on a whiteboard at the same time, you can listen and what they write on the board tends to be more brief but specific and supplements what's being said. I always find the latter more useful.

    Yeah you explained my point properly, thanks.
