  • If you've been watching studying videos for like 5 minutes, then you've already

  • heard of the Cornell Method, mindmaps or the famous outline technique.

  • These are all proven ways to take effective notes in class or during revision because

  • they provide a clear structure for ideas, facts and arguments and have been used by

  • top-scoring students all over the world.

  • But even if they are great, you're probably sick and tired of hearing about those three.

  • So today we're going to cover note taking methods that usually no one talks about and

  • are also incredible ways to organize information and ideas without resorting to the traditional

  • note-taking methods.

  • **Split page method**

  • The split page method is a great note-taking method for factually dense subjects and is

  • used as a more condensed version of flashcards, promoting active recall after your lectures

  • or in preparation for evaluation.

  • You can adapt it according to your class by using facts, topics or questions.

  • Dividing the page in half, you can insert the name of the topic or the question that

  • needs to be answered in the left side of the page and the corresponding answer or definition

  • on the right column.

  • You can either study these notes normally or by folding the page to create an added

  • challenge and quizzing yourself on these topics.

  • This type of note-taking method can be easily recreated in digital format and I will below

  • an awesome video that explains how you can do it in Google sheets.

  • **Q/E/C method**

  • The Q/E/C method is another study method that Cal Newport talks a lot about in his Straight-A

  • book.

  • Q/E/C stands for Question/Evidence/Conclusion, and the main purpose of this system is to

  • structure all of your lecture into question, evidence and conclusion formats that you can

  • then compile into one big study guide.

  • Besides reducing the amount of unnecessary information transcribed into your notes, the

  • Q/E/C system creates a clear and obvious interrelation between topic, conclusion and the stream of

  • facts and arguments that connect the two.

  • Furthermore, this note-taking system is two-in-one, since, besides helping you organize information

  • while you are reading or attending your lectures, you're also creating valuable study materials

  • to use during revision.

  • **Morse Code Method**

  • The Morse code method is a note-taking method envisioned by Cal Newport and focus mainly

  • on taking advantage of written materials.

  • Whenever you find a sentence that seems to be laying out a main idea, you should draw

  • a dot next to it in the margin; if you then come across an example or explanation that

  • supports that big idea you should draw a dash next to it on the margin.

  • This allows you to record information without breaking your reading momentum so you can

  • then take notes.

  • The act of taking the dots you've written and transforming them into notes is called

  • the processing stage and it basically requires you to paraphrase the main idea in your own

  • words in a bullet point.

  • The author then encourages you to take all of these sentences and review them in the

  • format of a major question: [em fundo branco:] “What is the main question being asked in

  • the article?

  • What is the conclusion the authors point towards?”

  • **Flow Notes**

  • Flow notes are very similar to mind maps but they have no rules in terms of structure.

  • Although difficult to review, they allow you to incorporate a large amount of information

  • during your class, because they are a free pass for you to simply throw facts, arguments,

  • topics and dates on the page with no specific order while connecting and linking these ideas

  • as you hear them.

  • Flow notes are great for those who hate transcribing information and prefer to process what they're

  • hearing into workable sentences or words; it's an holistic method that works wonders

  • for classes with no clear structure, or discussion with interrelated components that aren't

  • easily organized via outline or mind map format.

  • In case your class is highly dense on information, making it impossible to compress all of the

  • facts, you can still use flow notes as a hybrid system to comment and annotate original materials

  • and textbooks to create summaries or visual aids for complex chapters or topics.

  • **Sentence Method**

  • The sentence method is similar to the outline method as it relies on an expansive vision

  • of your notes, but instead of using indenting and topic formulation, it uses one-liners,

  • one per paragraph, to create a guide for each topic that is easily readable, workable and

  • memorable.

  • The other major difference is that while the outline technique uses indentation to hierarchize

  • the importance of different segments of the topic, by avoiding indenting the sentence

  • method considers every sentence of equal value, which means that topics with a high-level

  • of detail or information can benefit from this system as they force you to memorize

  • details as well as key ideas relating to the topic.

  • And if you want to reproduce these note taking systems in one place only and incorporate

  • your notes with all of the other information and materials related to your classes, you

  • should start using today's sponsor, Notion, as soon as possible.

  • Notion is an awesome tool and I've made three videos about how I use it to organize every

  • single thing in my life and the good thing is that Notion is sponsoring today's video

  • to let you know that it's finally free for students and teachers!

  • Notion is productivity software that combines all your essential work tools in one place.

  • It's flexible, allowing you to organize everything in workspaces and move things around seamlessly.

  • Two weeks ago I showed you how I created an academic planner in Notion, which includes

  • class notes, a calendar, syllabi pages, task lists, project planners and so on.

  • With this free personal plan for students, you can now have unlimited space to organize

  • everything.

  • All you have to do is sign up using your school email address or, if you already have Notion,

  • you can change your account e-mail to the e-mail of your school and that's it.

  • You can also access a bunch of templates designed specifically for students and educators, which

  • will be linked down below.

  • And if you aren't a student anymore, that's not a problemyou can enter the promo

  • code "mariana" to get your own free notion Personal plan by following the instructions

  • in the description box below.

  • Also, if you're curious about how I've been using Notion, I will link my past three videos

  • as well.

  • I will list in the description box below detailed articles about these note-taking methods.

  • I hope you enjoyed this video and I will see you next week.

  • Bye guys!
