Hi Doravarga :hello:

During my time at university, I found that the key to success was figuring out what works best for you. You may prefer to take notes on a laptop/tablet or perhaps you might prefer using a pen and paper? I would refer to VARK when figuring this out - are you a Visual learner, Audio learner, Reading learner or Kinetic learner?

I would recommend trying out a few different ways of taking notes and once you find a way (or ways) that work - stick to it! This may take a little time but it's worth it in the end.

Here are a few ideas to get you started when it comes to taking notes.

I hope this helps!
