Here is a sneak peek of one of the opening sections: Note Taking.

Keep Your Notes Simple
  • Try to boil down your thoughts into key words and phrases.
  • This will make your notes easier to revise and remember.
  • Shorter, more focused notes will help you to structure your ideas.
Know What You Want to Say
  • Although note taking will help you add nuance and direction to your essay, it’s best to go in with clear objectives.
  • Know what you’re aiming to get out of your notes, and be selective with what you highlight and jot down.
  • If it’s not going to help you with your specific task, don’t waste time noting it down.
Develop Your Notes
  • Over time, you’ll want your notes to gradually become more advanced up until the point where you’ll transform them into a detailed plan.
  • Spider diagrams are a good place to start. Collect your ideas on one page and show connections between ideas with lines and colour.
  • Then, flesh out these points into linear notes. Here you can organise your notes using headings and sub-headings, and underline what’s important.
  • After this, you will have the basis of a detailed plan, making which will be the next step!
