I tried making notes off my econ and cs textbook but it takes me 30 mins per page and I try summarise in my own words. It's getting tiring and boring any ideas what else I could do?

Notes? or just pretty much copying the page word for word?

Maybe you need to i stead get the key facts down in bullet points and then try expand their detail into a few lines before getting it solid in your mind through then practicing questions.

Or, maybe look at the Feynman Method.

Would it work if I just read a page and explain it to myself without writing anything down?

Hey Chaos126forever!

Why don't you read a page and explain it to yourself and then summarise what you have learned in a sentence or two!
This way you'll digest the information better as you have to concentrate reading and then think about the best way to summarise the content in a few sentences

I hope this helps!

If you’re handwriting the notes, maybe typing them would be quicker?
