Sorry for off topic. I'll delete this topic immediately when community decides it's useless, however if anyone finds it's interesting, share your opinion with us. I just want to know your opinion about learning process you lead. How exactly do you organize your learning process? I'll try to explain it more specific.
On lectures I've noticed few types of behavior. The first type writes everything/almost everything to the notebook. The second type uses laptop, it looks like they type the script of the lecture. The third type don't do anything, just listening. Of course there are many subtypes (use camera, use dictaphone). I listen and try to understand everything, I try to write all important stuff, when it doesn't disturb to understanding. What do you do on the lectures? Which type are you? What works best for you?
At home, I get my notebook and download the script of the lecture from the Internet. On the basis of the notebook, script and additional material (textbook, video of the diffent lecture on the topic) I try to get deep understanding with connection to already studied stuff. Recently I decided to use Xmind. It helps me to connect different stuff together and express things in the maps. I found that almost every lecture on every topic can be expressed as a map. The problem is Xmind doesn't support latex format, so equations and math notation everything in pictures with saved copy of latex script, I know it's not the best way to do it. Do you use any software to organize you lectures and material you've studied?
I found myself changing maps very often, not just adding new stuff, however after reading new material I start seeing stuff differently, therefore map should be changed in order to express the current state of the knowledge and understanding. Maps is the only thing I use before examination, because almost always it's the most organized material I have. How do you prepare yourself to exams?
