Take Notes

You take notes so you will remember what you read or hear.

Rules of Note Taking:

  1. Write clearly.
  2. Outline--write only what you need to know.
  3. Listen or focus on what you are writing.
  4. Don't waste space; only write things that are confusing or new to you.
  5. Don't use someone else's notes; they won't make sense.

Copying is not note taking; it is plagiarism!
