Hey there pre-meds! Today I got a quick tip for you that will most likely change the way you take notes from powerpoints for ever! As I mentioned in my article, the proper way to take notes , you shouldn’t ever be copying down whats already written on the powerpoint slides. That would be a waste of your class time as you already will have access to those powerpoints online. Just because everyone else is doing it doesn’t mean you should too. You should be using your class time instead to clarify those powerpoint slides and write down things that the instructor is saying about those slides. And thats exactly what this easy technique will help you do! With this you can take notes on the powerpoint slides in a convenient way that allows you to add what your professor says for each slide. (There is also an alternative method too! Check it out here!)
So how do you do it?
Step 1: Open your slides. And go to “Print”.
Step 2: Click on “Layout” and choose “Handouts (3 slides per page)
And now it should look like this.
And there you go! Now just print out the slides and you will have a nice notes section to each slide! The way to use this is to just take notes on what the professor is saying about each slide. This will save you alot of trouble in class and make sure you don’t miss anything important your professor is saying!
