    Why don't you use a small note pad and in each page write one experiment using bullet points. That's how I did it and it really helped.

    Awesome advice. I do think I need to condense my notes about the practicals down a bit!! How much did you write for each one? Is it possible for you to send me an example just so I get an idea?

    I basically write each step with just a few words. For example for easy remembering, I would write the first two steps of the experiment for tissue culture as : 1) take explant 2) prepare suitable medium. Etc.
