Note Taking

The Learning Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, through their Creative Commons license, have allowed us to link to their excellent web page titled Effective Note-Taking in Class.  There are tips for taking notes so that you can be most efficient while taking notes, and your notes will be most helpful later on, when you're studying for an exam.  There are even links to templates to use for setting up your note taking using different formats, such as Cornell Notes, Flowchart, Charting Method, and Sentence Method.
