My favorite part of note-taking is drawing emphasis to certain crucial sections, definitions, and the like. Emphasis is the key to remembrance after the fact. Plus, its a fun was to be uniquely expressive and creative with your note-taking. There are multiple methods for drawing emphasis, many of which you can customize to match your personal needs and styles.
For me, one of the most difficult parts of note-taking in class is knowing that the professor either goes too fast to keep up with notes in the moment, or knowing that they will circle back to a topic later and make it very difficult for me to keep my notes organized. There are a few ways to combat this, but they require patience and prior planning.
