Copyright © Houghton Mifflin 9 - 4 The Importance of Notetaking Discussion Points: Taking notes combats memory fading and interference. Effective notes back up and reinforce memory. Research shows a high correlation between the quality of notes and test performance and grades. Textbook notes condense large amounts of information into more manageable and meaningful units of information. Studying from effective notes is more time efficient than rereading chapters multiple times. Learning to use new notetaking systems begins by using them to take textbook notes before taking lecture notes.

Copyright © Houghton Mifflin 9 - 5 Essential Strategies for Textbook Notetaking Understanding what you read before taking notes. Be selective by capturing only main ideas and supporting details so your notes are a condensed version of printed materials. Paraphrase or reword. Include textbook reminders in your notes to review specific sections or charts in the textbook. Label your notes. Use spaced practice to make several contacts with your notes over different time periods. Use feedback strategies, such as reciting, visualizing, or Look-Away Techniques. Review your notes immediately and on an ongoing basis.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
