It’s hard to collate a list of best jobs at a university. A job that pays you well and teaches you any skill is good enough to get you through your college years. It’s important to keep in mind that any job that you take up shouldn’t interfere with your studies and if possible support it.

What are your pro-tips for taking good notes? From your experience, how should students make notes during a lecture that’ll help with their study strategy.
For taking impeccable notes, it is vital to not only include key ideas and words from the slideshow the professor is using to present during lecture, but also copy down what the professor is actually saying. It not only helps you understand the concepts more thoroughly from an auditory perspective but also it strengthens your listening and analytical abilities. From grasping the main ideas during the lecture, it can truly help you, as a student, recall the information during your study sessions.
How has taking notes helped you beyond earning? Pointers – Talk about any difference you feel in your studying process or any difference you see in your exam preparation.
Taking notes, although it was a common practice for me during lectures anyways, helped me with my memorization with the concepts I learned during class. Because I was taking notes for not only myself, it helped me simplify and break down these concepts into subcategories to truly understand what I’m learning. I noticed that I didn’t need to study as thoroughly or prepare an elaborate study guide because I had these notes I’ve written during and outside of lecture to look back to and either rewrite or review. It made my study sessions for my midterms and finals a lot quicker and efficient because of my improved recall abilities as well as the convenience these notes have brought for me because I don’t have to sift through the textbook or slides online my professor provides.
