Join Paul Nowak for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Note-Taking for Business Professionals.
- All lynda.com members have access to the exercise files in this course. Just download the ZIP file to your desktop and unpack it, like I've done here. Not all of the videos in this course use exercise files, but when they do, I'll let you know and remind you to grab a particular file. The goal of these exercise files are to help you apply what you're learning in this course. Finally, note that all the XMind files are for the final chapter. You'll need to download the free version of the XMind program before you can use these files.
I'll show you how to do this later.
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.
