Join Paul Nowak for an in-depth discussion in this video The Cornell note-taking system, part of Note-Taking for Business Professionals.
- Taking notes quickly can be a challenge,…especially when lots of detailed information is being…rapidly presented during a meeting with multiple people.…If you need to keep up with all this information,…you may want to consider taking notes…using the Cornell system.…The Cornell system helps you organize your notes…into two major columns using a…standard 8 1/2 by 11 inch page.…Start by drawing a horizontal line…about four to six lines from the bottom of your page.…If your paper doesn't have any lines,…draw this horizontal line about…two to three inches from the bottom.…
Then, draw a vertical line about two inches…from the left side of your page.…The left column will be the area where…you review your main points.…On the right side column, which is larger,…you'll add more of your detailed notes.…The bottom part of your page will be…where you summarize the information as an action plan.…On the top right-hand side of the page,…you'll want to add the subject matter of these notes.…And again, you'll be adding all your detailed notes…
Author Paul Nowak also explores techniques for taking notes more quickly, including capturing ideas rather than sentences, improving typing speed, and using simple shorthand.
