Effective note-taking strategies to be used by tertiary level students include Outline or Paraphrased, Cornell or 2-coltmm and Mapping methods. Enhancing note-taking skills of students requires taking aggressive posture in preparing to take notes; getting writing materials ready before- hand and engaging in specific note-taking actions like active listening, recording main ideas of a lecture, using abbreviations, writing legibly and clearly among otlter things. Some of the recommendations made were organizing training seminars/workshops for teachers and students on quality note-taking and students’ determination to use effective note-taking strategies that will enhance their academic performance.
