Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on how to take condensed revision notes. Right now, I feel like I am literally copying word for word from my text book and it is just pointless as it is not helping me. How do you distinguish between what information is important and what is not needed? Thank you!

From my experience, I find that if I look at each paragraph, depending on the paragraph size, i take bullet point notes. A large paragraph takes 4-5 and a smaller one takes 2-4. Just look at the information which you believe to be relevant, or what is relevant and note it. You also don't need to read word for word, you can skim read. Hope this helps.
