    Taking notes

    How do I take notes that are enough to show that I have understanding higher than most students (HSIE subjects) for essays etc, but so that I'm not taking too many that I can remember? How do I balance it?

    Re: Taking notes

    tbh for the essays what distinguishes people in these types of subjects is the ability to link content to the question and also real world examples through case studies (have to be very solid for a high mark), and not really taking notes. So what you should do is take a decent amount of notes, however, be able to write an essay

    Re: Taking notes

    To be honest, I don't think perfect notes can be achieved in one go, and I think smart note taking on first go is only a natural instinct for a limited amount of people. It might just be much easier to start with one set of notes first, before making it better in the next-and condensing it that way.
