Note Taking : Cornell System
 

During your study, you need to take notes while your teachers are explaining or demonstrating during a lesson. Train yourself to take notes quickly and effectively.

One of the best note taking systems is called the Cornell System or the 3R System. Here is and adapted version of this system.

Step One : Record

  • Divide your paper into 2 columns (a small and large one).
  • Be an active listener and record important information in the larger, right-hand column.
  • Be selective and use symbols, abbreviations, acronyms, charts ... (Avoid complete sentences).
  • In the small left-hand column, show the organisation of your notes.
  • You can use simple listings (1,2,3 ... or a,b,c ...), time sequence or order of ideas and steps.

Step Two : Reduce

  • Summarise the information in each page of notes.
  • Write your summary at the bottom of the page.
  • You can also write questions about a difficult point to answer later.

Step Three : Recite

  • Use your summaries as a resource for reviewing and reciting.
  • You can go back to your notes to check your summaries or answer your questions.
  • If necessary, use other resources to supplement your notes.
  • Review your notes frequently to combat memory loss.
