Auditory Learners: Try the Cornell Notes System

If you’re an auditory learner, you may benefit from listening to lectures and writing down key concepts or words. These simple nursing school notes can jog your memory, and you can go back to fill in information when reading the chapters, says Beck. She suggests trying the Cornell Notes system. “It is a great way to divide information into categories for organization,” she said. “Divide your paper into three sections, use the first column to define topics and the second column to write a few key words, leaving space to go back and fill in later with ideas and summaries of the topics. The last column is for questions needing further explanation at the next class.”
