Note making: Effective note making

Making notes from texts

In most subjects, books and scholarly journals will provide the largest source of material for your notes.

What you decide to note, and the amount of detail will depend, to some extent, on your purpose for taking notes. However, there are some common features that you might wish to include:

  • main points & relevant supporting details
  • topic specific terms, phrases and key words
  • definitions
  • diagrams
  • formulae (and their derivations if appropriate)
  • calculations
  • quotes
