For Taking Faster Notes in Class
There's nothing worse than staring at a test question and having no idea where it came from. "Was that covered in class?" you wonder to yourself--because it sure wasn't in the notes you studied.
Then, after class, you discover that your friends all got the question right. It was in their notes, it just wasn't in your notes.
This sinking feeling creeps over everyone at some point. Sometimes we just can't realistically expect to capture every word the teacher says. But there is a way to increase the amount of information we capture in our notes.
By developing your own personalized speed writing technique, you can record more information and do so more quickly and more accurately. Simply create a shorthand, of sorts, that uses abbreviations and symbols for words you hear most often in each specific course. By developing this skill now, you'll become an expert note-taker by the time you reach college. You'll be glad you took the time!
