GATE Preparation: Tips to make notes
Make notes short and concise
Maintain formulas, short-cuts and tips/tricks in notes
Every field of study has its own vocabulary, so identify words and
terms used to represent specific concepts. Maintain them in your notes.
Sometimes objective questions can be used to test your ability to distinguish
concepts, ideas, theories, events, facts from each other. Construct diagrams, charts, tables or lists to summarize relationships.
