    So basically I will be starting university from next week and I just wanted to know what the routine was as a student in terms of revision and making notes

    So would it be:
    1) go to your lecture and make notes
    2) go to the library and add extra notes from relevant textbooks
    3) go online perhaps?
    4) is that it?

    Thank you!
    I'm going to be doing chemistry btw
    Not sure if it's different for other subjects

    Inbetween 1 and 2, I would say remake notes if you have the time. Writing it out helps and you can also make it neater.

    And after you've got that all down, practice some questions if applicable. Or practice drawng diagrams or whatever and if you have a maths unit, practice as many questions as you can / need to online.

    To be honest I only ever took notes from lectures. When it came to essays/exams then I went to the library and online and added to the relevant sections (often you only needed say 5 out of 10 topics for the exam).

    Usually lecture notes, key reading notes, additional reading notes if I feel like it and then extra notes on things I didn't really get or found interesting.

    Hello ,

    At the end of the day, it's how you revise best.
    It always (usually) starts off by making notes in your lectures, via pen & paper or laptop etc. Usually people then go home and write them up in 'neat'. People do go to the library and take notes, make more notes and take quotes from books etc - some use online e-books and such but yeah, that's it!

    Good luck
