In the past I would read a textbook, take notes while reading then create note cards. I find myself just essentially writing down exactly what the book says on my notes with a slight change in wording. I dont even really retain what I am writing, I just get through copying things down after a while. This is a serious time suck, I will spend close to an hour on 2-3 pages. With this taking so much time taking a much heavier load this quarter is going to be impossible. This is for biology btw. I have looked up some previous posts and everyone says read the power point slides. The slides my teacher provides are essentially useless for anything other than big picture idea. I just need some tips for reading the textbook and taking notes effectively for long term memory and cut down time. Thanks.
