Hey TheDregOfSociety!

I like my notes to be clear and to the point, but I also like to highlight key words / headings so I can easily see them If I'm scanning my notes for a particular thing. I like to use bullet points where I can as well.
You may find it useful to draw diagrams in your notes or you may not, it depends how you learn best.
I'd suggest trialling a few ways and seeing what works best for you.
I use my notes to write out more concise points on flashcards that I can use to revise from.

I hope this gives you a few pointers!
