    Hi. I am in my first year of pharmacy. I am very particular when it comes to taking notes!
    I have recently just started taking bullet point notes in lectures (rough ones) because lecturers tend to go v quickly. After lesson, I then make rough notes on the background reading of the topic we covered in lecture. Then my plan is to combine the two notes to give my final set of notes from which I will revise from. Is this a good idea? It's very time consuming but then doing this I feel I will have covered everything.

    How do other ppl make their notes at uni ?

    I think your strategy has a lot going for it - I always used to make index cards with just brief points but designed in such a way that each point would remind me straight away furher detail about that

    -topic. Then near exam time, when hours for revision are limited just whizzing through these cards fairly swiftly brought back all the detail in a relatively short span of time. I had over a thousand such cards in the BMS (Basic Medical Sciences - first two years) of medicine, but covering 12 subjects, with half them having books longer than 600 pages each.

    Just a thought.
