    Wow it finally sent ( been trying to send it for 5 mins -.-)

    Is having a different notebook for different modules a good idea or not? I've never only used one notebook.

    And how can I spend time wisely?

    Hey Chicken Korma,

    When i was at school we had a a4 notebook for every subject. What subject are you studying? i knew some had big ring-binders and just slotted all their work in there separated by a divider.

    What does your day normally consist of? If i had a day where i was free for a couple of hours i would go to the library early morning and get on with the work because if i didn't i would just sleep until its time for my lecture which is very unwise. Also i would not study at home as i can't concentrate as i would just watch tv or end up sleeping late.

    When i was at scool we used exercise books. Good for note taking. When I went did a levels and went to uni i upgraded to ringbinders and a4 pads. I used to get those colour section dividers. Iys personal. You could have a lever arch file for main storage and a smaller a4 folder to keep your day to day work in.

    Whatever suits you. Importnat to keep your work together and well organised.

    I used an a4 pad, which i could then tear out sheets and put them in a ring binder. Its whatever suits you. I hardly use paper these days as I use the pc.

    When you come to revise, your notes get made into revision notes which are condensed down. I put them on the pc as its easy to copy and paste then edit and more legible. In my day we didnt have technology as we do today.

    Hmmm. All I need to improve is note taking method via notebook. My aim is to try different techniques

    what you wnat a decent set of legible notes. That means consistent note taking and consolidation. Its a personal thing, but when they are on compiter they become easier to update. Such a long time since ive used paper alone.
