Tutorial: how to make organized notes.

  1. Read the objectives of the lecture. If there aren’t any, flip through the lecture slides and make an outline. This puts into perspective what you need to be learning and what you should get out of this lecture.
  2. Skim the book to get familiar with how the information is divided compared to your outline or objectives. While doing this, you’ll figure out whether or not you need the extra details from the book. Sometimes the lecture is enough and you could keep the textbook just as a reference to things you don’t get.
  3. Write down the first objective and flip to the page in the book that has the information pertaining to that objective. Read the lecture slide then refer to the book for details.
  4. Combine your lecture notes with the textbook information. Do this by rewriting the information in your own words and try to be as concise as possible. 
  5. Keep doing this for every objective. Paste things if it helps.
  6. Make sure that you’re not just copying information. Use visual aids as much as possible. Put the information in a table, flowchart, diagram, etc.. (refer to this post to see how I make my flowcharts).
  7. When you’re done with all your objectives, go through the lecture and your notes to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

General tips on how to keep them organized:

  • Be systemic. Making objective-oriented notes is one way to do that. 
  • Use two (or more colors). Color-coding information helps me remember it + it doesn’t look that bad.
  • Section your objectives according to the topic. Then make sure that when you’re writing out the information, it’s in a sequence that’s understandable.

Disclaimer: this is the way I’ve been making my notes since I started med school. By no means am I claiming it’s perfect or that everybody should follow it.

Hope this helps and as always, happy studying :)

I found Carrie and my roommate agreement. We added a section. Enjoy.

"RULES OF RANDOMNESS: -Carrie is in charge of all spider-killing. –In case of a zombie apocalypse, both roommates must protect each other and not steal each others shoes. -If gummy bears are present, one gummy bear must be offered to the other roommate. –If someone breaks into the room from the window the person closest to the crazy person/drunk/hobo/alien/Steve that Kristen works with/the kool aid man, must fight to the death (if it happens to be the kool aid man, pour two cups and celebrate). No farting on each other’s pillows. –In the event that a fish comes into our lives his/her name must be Mike. In the event that Mike explodes or commits suicide, Amy must flush his dreams and his body down the far back-left stall while singing eye of the tiger. If all the furniture in the room becomes animated, like in beauty and the beast, Carrie must shoot all the furniture with a nerf shotgun. "

Kent State Girls Looking for Roommate!!!

Hi guys, due to unforseen circumstances I cannot return to kent state in the fall and thus cannot fulfill a lease for an apartment that I signed. I am desperate to find someone to sublease! There are two very nice, laid back girls who would be your roommates and you’d get your own room. One is a fashion design major and the other is a crafts major. If you’re going to Kent State University and looking for a place to stay message my main blog, SewRachel for details. Please please please signal boost this I would really appreciate it!

Edit: it’s only a 9 month lease!!
