As a student, I found an easy way to keep my notes separated for each different class. At the beginning of school, I bought about ten dollars worth of the spiral one subject notebooks. I found them at the local Wal-mart and they were about ten cents for each one. I used one spiral notebook per class and I placed all my notes in them. When the class was over, I just placed the used notebook in the file cabinet with the folder that held all handouts as well.
Furthermore, I always wrote the name of the class on the notebook and the folder. That way, I never got my class notes mixed up or lost the important information I needed. By staying organized, you will find your material that is needed for homework. There are some other ways to stay organized, like a three ring notebook that holds all your class notes. However, make sure that you use several paper dividers and mark them properly. Try using these tips and you will be more organized when it comes to note taking.
