- Instructors talk fast, write fast.
- Use key words rather than getting every word said or displayed.
- Draw pictures/diagrams
oAs many of you have sat in a class before you know that Instructors talk fast and it seems like they are eager to push that next button quickly as well. It is almost impossible to write down everything they say and or everything they write on the slides.
oIn my experience you can never write fast enough no matter how hard you try or practice. Save yourself by writing key words or phrases. Also listen to the instructor more times than one they give hints to what might be on a quiz or test.
oPictures and diagrams are also good tools to use to help you to learn and remember facts, cycles, systems, and key ideas.
