Aku teringat zaman belajar di universiti dulu, kena ambil nota dalam kelas apa yg lecturer tulis or present kat overhead projector (dulu pakai manual letak plastik) aku copy.Kadang-kadang tah apa-apa nota aku tulis.Akhirnya nota aku tah ke mana and cilok nota orang.Teruk juga aku.Inilah masalahnya tak pandai ambil nota.Isk..apa nak jadi..sampai dah ada Master pun tak reti ambil nota.Sebenarnya aku prefer belajar sendiri dan di kelas aku mendengar apa yang lecturer terangkan dan perbincangan.Aku lebih suka 2 hala..2 ways communication.Itu yang menyebabkan aku lebih faham.
Oklah, aku temui tips ni dari rakanku yang sedang belajar di UK..United Kingdom bukan Ulu Klang. Aku belajar universiti Malaysia jek..hehehe..tapi tak salah kita sharing knowledge kan.
What to Write Down During a Class LectureYour professor says an awful lot of things during class. You can't possibly write it all down, nor should you. To take the best notes (and ace your exams), pay attention to your professor's cues—conscious and subconscious.
Part of a great guide on note-taking strategies by Brett and Kate McKay on The Art of Manliness, these are the tell-tale signs that you should be writing down what your professor is saying:
Another great tip is to write down any examples or hypotheticals the professor offers, because you'll probably see a similar one on your final, especially if you're taking math or science classes or are in law school. Examples are also key in computer science/programming classes.
- Anytime the professor says, "You need to know this," or "This will be on the test." Duh.
- Anytime the professor repeats himself.
- Anything the professor writes on the board or includes in a Powerpoint slide.
- Anything the professor repeats very slowly so that it can be taken down word for word.
- If your professor starts talking more quickly, or loudly, or with more emphasis.
- Watch for language that shows relationships between ideas. These sorts of points are often where professors get their exam questions from:
- first, second, third
- especially, most significant, most important
- however, on the other hand
- because, so, therefore, consequently
Sometimes, depending on the professor, paying attention is the hardest part. But keep your ears perked for these keywords and points and you might find yourself with more effective notes. Photo by Columbia Admissions
