How you take notes can affect how much information you're able to recall. You can make reviewing course information less stressful by learning how to integrate traditional techniques for taking notes with the technological accessibility of note-taking applications.
The best way to take notes in college depends on which method of note-taking works for you. Using a style of taking notes that allows you organize information in a way you can easily understand can help you with focus and comprehension when it comes time to study.
Note-taking applications merge the contextual understanding of subject matter achieved in taking notes by hand with the organization and convenience of technology.
The best note-taking applications for college students are easy to use, promote organization and make finding information within your notes just a quick search away. Most have a free basic plan, a discounted option for students or low-cost and premium plans. Others are free with software and websites you already have access to.
Finding the best way to take notes that works for you may take some trial and error. If you take the time to explore your options, you'll find a style of taking notes that fits your needs and the best note-taking application to help you reach your academic goals.
