If you really want to get good grades in your psychology courses, then it is absolutely essential to take quality lecture notes. What exactly do I mean by quality? Should you try to write down everything that the professor says during class? Absolutely not. Lecture notes should be organized and should contain the vital information that was discussed in class, but you should never attempt to create transcripts of every word spoken by your instructor.

Instead, focus on writing down main ideas and important supplementary information such as key terms, concepts and study questions. One good tip - if your teacher writes something down of the board or displays it on an overhead slide projector, then you should definitely write it down! Teachers frequently draw many test questions right from their own lectures, so if your instructor felt that it was important enough to write down then their is a strong chance it will show up on your next exam. Discover some more great tips in this article on how to take psychology notes.
