As you are adding information to your notes, it is important to

D. include source information for further reference.
As you are adding information to your notes, it is important to be alert and attentive to the main points. Concentrate on the "meat" of the subject. Notes should consist of key words, or very short sentences. [ You should usually use your own words, but try not to change the meaning. If you quote directly from the author, quote correctly. Take notes that will be of real value to you when you
look over them later. Have a uniform system of punctuation and abbreviation that will make sense to you. Use a skeleton outline, and show importance by indenting. Leave lots of white space for later additions. Keep notes in order and in one place. Shortly after making your notes, go back and rework (not recopy!) your notes. Review your notes periodically. This is the only way to achieve lasting memory.
