- As you move through this course, you'll occasionally come across a challenge exercise. These challenges are meant to help you immediately apply what you learned. Most of the challenges are fairly quick to complete. It won't take more than ten minutes of your time. In fact, most of the challenges can be done in around five minutes. I'd highly recommend you complete these challenges since they'll help solidify the information you just learned. Every challenge video is followed by a solution, where I'll go over an example of how you could have completed the exercise. This is a great way to get some hands-on practice experience.
As you've probably heard, practice makes perfect, and these practice challenges will help you master the note-taking strategies you'll be learning.
Author Paul Nowak also explores techniques for taking notes more quickly, including capturing ideas rather than sentences, improving typing speed, and using simple shorthand. The course also offers a number of note-taking templates to help prepare for project planning, SWOT meetings, timelines, business travel, and more.
