|Author||Topic: Taking notes while studying|
|I was wondering if you guys were actually taking your own notes while you are studying. I'm trying to do that but it takes so much time, but it's the only way I can retain the concepts! How are you managing with that issue?|
|I also need to write down notes since it helps me remember things I would otherwise have forgotten, especially those concepts with which I wasn't so familiar before.
In addition, I am using the notes for reviewing the material after having completed a whole book. I.e. after finishing a book, first I shortly review the previous book I had read, then the most recent one and then move on to a new book.
|I created my own flash cards while going through the reading. Not only does it help writing things down, it also helps because reviewing flash cards in your own "language" may help your retention of the material.
I have a few friends who are teachers and they are all taught that by far the best way to remember information is to write it down.
