Definitions Enumerations or lists of things that are discussed. Material written on the chalkboard or projector, including drawings or charts. Information that is repeated or spelled out. 5. Review and edit your notes Edit for words and phrases that are illegible or don’t make sense. Write out abbreviated words that might be unclear later. Edit with a different colored pen to distinguish between what you wrote in class and what you filled in later. Fill in key words and questions in the left-hand column. Note anything you don’t understand by underlining or highlighting to remind you to ask the instructor. Compare your notes with the textbook reading and fill in important details in the blank spaces you left. Perhaps consider rewriting or typing up your notes if absolutely necessary for organizational purposes. However, the purpose of these tips is to keep you organized since the beginning.
