If your professor is nice enough to provide the lecture slides to you before they’re actually shown in class, then printing them out and taking notes right on them can be an excellent method of note-taking.
I call this the “lazy man’s approach to note-taking,” but in reality it’s just efficient; if 80% of the information is already available for you to take home, then you can save a lot of time by simply adding personal notes and references on top of it instead of going through the effort of writing your notes from scratch.
One nice feature of this “system” is that it gives you something similar to a timeline of the lecture. Since the slides are usually presented in a linear fashion, you can use your slide-notes as a way to jog your memory about things that were said at a specific point in a past lecture. It’s quite similar to SoundCloud, which is a hosting service for audio files that lets you leave comments at specific points on a track.
There isn’t much more to say about this method; however, I will mention that it’s important to remain vigilant about truly learning the material and putting ideas in your own terms. The few times I’ve used the method in my classes, I found I was much lazier about creating a thorough picture of the material.
