    I take down notes in lectures along with the PowerPoint the lecturer uses. But my written notes are a mess because I try to right them really quickly.

    How do I study these notes? Should I type up the notes I've written into separate word documents

    Hi imaannxxx

    What are you studying?

    I'd suggest you do whatever you feel works for you, whether that's typing them up, re-writing them in neater handwriting, putting the information into mind maps or posters, even cue cards if you need them.

    My handwriting used to be awful for my lecture notes, then when I'd come to revise it I couldn't even read what I'd written!

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks for the response - I feel like typing works for me, I'll even try some cue cards! Also, I study Law.

    Hi imaannxxx


    Sounds great! Could always use the cue cards for specific cases/acts?

    Hope you get on well
