Hello all! Today I will be sharing my techniques for color-coding my class notes. Having organized notes is very important and can actually help keep you motivated!
Use different highlighter colors for different information.
I love this tip and began using it back when I was taking Anatomy and Physiology I. Here is how I highlights my notes:
- Pink=anything the professor really emphasizes/repeats
- Orange=important numbers/lab values
Match textbook tab and binder divider colors.
I began using this technique just recently in my Pathophysiology class. If the binder divider I labeled for Unit 1 was red, I will then use red tabs to mark off the chapters in Unit 1 in the textbook.
Color code your index cards.
I originally found this idea on Pinterest under a nursing school board. I decide to start using this and it actually helped when you have a lot of index cards to sort through. I would swipe the top of my cards and then hole punch the corners and place them on an index card ring to bring around with me.
