Good Notetaking
This is the system I’ve used since my sophomore year of high school for notes and its worked consistently, all the way through to my senior year of college. I hope it helps!
I generally use three different color pens in bright shades. You want your notes to be something you enjoy looking at. One color is for headings and important, must remember facts (pink). One color is for key words and theories (green) and one is for definitions (purple).
If I’m given a diagram during a lecture, I do my best to copy it down. Then I try to describe whats going on in my own words. Having a mental image of some important process has saved my but on an exam multiple times!
I also draw little example pictures inline with the text of my notes as additional memory devices.
If the professor makes the class slides available before the lecture, I’ll print them and write general summaries of the material in my notes ahead of time. That will save you from rushing in lecture and give you more time to ask questions about the things you don’t understand.
Generally, my notes don’t come out as neat as they are here. Most of the time, I end up copying them over so they’re easier to read and study from. Plus you get the added bonus of extra revision!
Good luck and happy studying! Xx

A lot of you requested an in-depth look at how I set up my planner, so here we go!

What I use:

• Papermate InkJoy pens
• Post-It file tabs
• Avery color-coding labels
• stickers

Individual Pages:

I start by dividing the page in half. One side is for to-dos, the other is for goal tracking and reminders.

On my to-do side, I list any of my timed obligations at the top. Underneath that I put my task list for the day.

On the goal tracking side, I have my water intake, vitamins and exercise goals. I also have reminders for upcoming events or ideas for future projects.

Since inspiration is the biggest part of keeping myself motivated, I include a quote and a daily bible verse as little reminders. I use a daily app for the iPhone to find my favorites.

For my monthly calendar, I include all of my big appointments and different longer term work projects. This is where the Avery labels come in handy. All of my most important tasks are on a color coded sticker, so I can see them right at first glance.

And finally the front of my planner has extra sticky notes, a master chore list, a master to-do list, a general color-coding key and some of my favorite photos!

Remember this is just one of the hundreds of ways to setup a planner! I tweak my approach almost daily. Do what works best for you.

Study hard and stay awesome my friends.
