You could use it any way you want, really, it just depends on how you organize your revisions. One way I heard of is, on the right you have your lecture notes and on the left you write the questions that you can ask for that set of notes. So, for example:
Who was Medusa was one of the three Gorgons, the only Medusa? one who was mortal. Had snakes instead of hair and could kill if was looked at directly.
I would recommend using whichever suits you and the subject you’re doing. Frustrating answer, I know, but it’s very hard to choose one over the other!
Here are some (extremely brief!) pros and cons for each instead:
- You’re far more likely to remember things you write down yourself
- Gives you the opportunity to put notes into your own style (flexible format - you can write them however suits you!)
- You can add things in and draw arrows and use whatever note taking method you like, because you aren’t restricted by (for example) your word doc. This makes handwritten notes more friendly for more learning styles, as they’re easily adaptable.
- Can take a long time to copy out, and can be difficult to keep up in class - sometimes you’re so busy trying to keep up with notes that you don’t even remember what was being said!
- Can be messy and difficult to read/study
- You don’t have a back up copy - if you lose them, you can’t just print out another set.
- Very efficient - you can type much faster than you can write, it’s easier to keep up and it’s also easier to correct mistakes.
- Back up copies!
- Can be saved in multiple locations meaning you can access them almost anywhere if you set it up that way - save the trees, increase efficiency! No lugging notebooks around!
- It’s likely you’ll need to study typed notes more than handwritten ones, meaning you end up having to do more work
- You can’t really choose how they look - if you’re a visual learner, this can be a real issue.
- There’s the old issue of the trusty paper and pen. What if your battery runs out? Your device breaks irreparably? You forget it? You lose/delete files? and so on
As you can see, there’s merit and detriment to both. In the end, I think they’re pretty equal. It’s really up to you! I prefer to use handwritten notes or to print notes out and scribble annotations on them, but that’s just me. Whatever suits you best, you should use ^_^ good luck!
