This week, the topic is,

TAKING NOTES:

There is no need to rely on memory if you have mastered efficient methods of recording speech or condensing written communication. There are several different ways to make written records: experiment, and use whichever method suits you.

POWER TIPS:

  1. Read your notes while what you have recorded is fresh in your mind.
  2. Mark passages in books, and make notes afterwards.
  3. Use colour and illustrations to make your Mind Maps works of art.
  4. Emphasize keynotes with highlighter pens.

TAKING LINEAR NOTES:

Listen to what is being said and note down the key points in your own words. Try writing a succinct explanation of each point, and use headings and number to structure your notes.

USING SPEEDWRITING:

Use standard abbreviations such as ampersand (&) for “and”. Use special abbreviations for common words or word parts, such as tt (that), th (the), t (to and it), r (are), s (is), v (very), f (of), g (-ing), and d (-ed).

TAKING NOTES USING SPEEDWRITING:

Space your notes in short paragraphs. Afterwards, read through quickly to check that everything makes sense to you.

USING MIND MAPS:

MIND MAPS, which were devised by Tony Buzan, are a way of making visual notes. To make a Mind Map, write down a keyword or phrase, or draw an image in the middle of a page. This is the subject of the Mind Map.

CREATING A MIND MAP:

Put the theme in the centre of the page. As ideas come into your mind, print words on “branches” or lines radiating outwards. Vary the size of words, and use lots of colour and images since both help memory. Link related areas with arrows.

 

With respect.
