1. Decide: Digital or Traditional?

2. Keep your notes in one place.

3. How you take these notes depends on what the course outline/requirements are as stated by the subject guide/learning outcomes. Basically, what you are tested on.

4. Filter out your information into these learning outcomes (i colour code them) when you read from any source, whether they be lecture notes or the readings.

Here's how I use mine [see attachment]

5. Make sure the important information stands out to you, so when you are revising, you can put it all together.

6. Structure your revision notes as how you would answer an exam question / like an essay plan. The questions of the essay plan will come from your learning outcomes.

I hope this helps! Let me know if anything is unclear.
