"Within 24 hours, you will forget at least half of what was said in the lecture"

(Ace Center St. Charles Community College).

How to Take Effective Notes

One of the stated Student Learning Outcomes for this section is to focus on how you take notes in lecture and to work on how to improve the quality of lecture notes you take. Time spent on this skill will reap rewards not only in this class but in all other classes.

The West Valley College Tutorial Center has resources that exemplify how  notes should be taken in lecture and how to write up these notes making them into valuable learning tools. There is some degree of overlap between different sources (which suggests that the points repeated are worth repeating....), but notive that they all feature the same basic routine:

1. Come prepared
2. Take notes using a system that you understand
3. Write up your notes adding in details and filling in blanks within 24 hours of lecture..
