Helpful Steps to Take
Taking notes during your courses is crucial, and you need the right tools to do it. Purchase a note-book for every subject you take, and at the end of each lesson, use the notebook to make notes, summaries, and include details of anything you did not understand. You can also write down important notes on cue cards, and then go over them at a later date. Give cue cards to others so that you can test your understanding. A Dictaphone is also a great tool to record notes, especially if you find it easier to remember speech. During exam time, make a complete list of all the subjects you have taken, and all the topics within each subject. You can then cross off each topic once you have revised it
