Physics help from experts.
Here are study skills that change note-taking into effective learning.
During class: 1. Divide your page into two columns. Use one for class notes; use the other for comments and questions.
After class: 1. As soon as possible, review your notes. This is best done with your study group. Do not rewrite your notes. Rather, summarize important ideas and relationships in the comments column. Also, add notes from your readings. 2. Write questions that come to mind and discuss these with your physics tutor, study group, or prof. Write the answer in the comments column.
