In order to build up your own file of material, you will need to make notes from books and articles as well as taking notes during lessons. You will also need to produce notes as preparation for essays and coursework. Effective note taking is a skill that needs to be developed and practised. A variety of techniques can be used: Use your own words don t simply copy. Dictation goes through your ears, down your arm and onto the paper without stopping at the brain!!

5 Write notes in point form with sub-headings- this is much easier to revise from than continuous paragraphs. Be concise, don t write every word. Teachers repeat themselves. Emphasise key points or psychologists names by highlighting or underlining, by using CAPITALS and developing a system of key phrases But However Method Evaluation Leave a space to add comments later and emphasise a change in context Develop your own techniques eg mind maps Some students always highlight psychologists names or provide a quick summary at the beginning or end eg Watson & Rayner (1920) Little Albert/ Classical conditioning Use abbreviations- there will be a whole range of key terms that are used frequently. Develop your own system and use recognised symbols eg Ψ Psychology Ps Participants Beh Behaviour Careers in Psychology Advertising Business Personnel Childcare Counselling Educational Psychologist Management Marketing Mental health professional Nursing Physiotherapy Police Force Prison Service Clinical Psychologist Psychiatry Psychologist Research Forensic Psychologist Social Services Sports Psychologist Teaching
