    I’ve just started first year of a Psychology degree and am wondering what the expected way to revise/make notes are. Currently, after each lecture I go through the slides that are put online and combine them with a textbook to form a new set of notes. The problem I have with this is that it seems to be taking a fairly long time to do this; for a PowerPoint of a two hour lecture (roughly around forty slides) to be analysed and integrated with the information from a textbook, it can take perhaps three to four hours. So doing this for each lecture leads me to wonder how much everyone else is doing.

    This form of note taking is for those units that are exam orientated so I understand that spending hours making notes for units that are assessed by coursework assignments isn’t as necessary, but this then also makes me wonder how one should be preparing for these assignments.

    So, how do you prepare for exams?
    ...and how do you prepare for coursework? Any contribution is much appreciated.
