Before LectureIf possible, print out the lecture slides before class, that way you can focus on writing down what the professor says and not the slides. If you can’t print out the slides, abbreviate them in your notes so you can focus more on what’s being said. Then, print them out afterwards and coordinate printed slides with your notes. Don’t waste note-taking time copying slides when you can just print them out later. Sit close to the front of the class; there are fewer distractions and it is easier to hear, see and attend to important material.
