3 Key Methods of Note Taking

  1. Prose Notes
  2. Mind Map
  3. Keyword Notes

Prose Notes

  • Most detailed out of 3 methods.
  • Almost full sentences.
  • Headings or numbers.
  • Useful for detail.
  • Time consuming.
  • Not suitable for lectures due to pace.
  • Useful for taking notes whilst reading a text in your own time.

Keyword Notes

  • Bullet points (Brief)
  • Headings, sub-headings and numbers.
  • Useful as triggers.
  • Helpful for revision.
  • Can use in lectures.

Mind Map and Visual Doodling

  • Messy, crazy and hard to read.
  • Easy for some people.
  • Less professional.
  • Good to use for illustrations and planning, in my opinion not for note taking.

Notes Advice

  • No plagiarism, if taking text use quotations.
  • Don’t be too detailed but don’t be too brief. Have an equal balance.
  • Don’t miss any key points. Don’t pick up information that you don’t need.
  • Make sure your work isn’t cluttered.
  • Be neat and organized.
  • Use only one side of the paper so things are organized and it will make it easier for when you need your notes in the future.
  • Save space for extra information.
  • Have numbered pages and date your work.
  • Use Bullet Points.
