A major concept that I have taken away from this class is to take well concise notes. I used to never take notes on the things I read because none of my English classes called for them. But with your expectation of us to have written them, and the test reflecting such expectation, I now take thorough notes. Not only have I started taking notes, I know how to structure them well now. Before, it was just a point and then a bullet underneath it stating a detail. With the little tricks that this class has taught me, I can better find the information I need instead of searching for minutes looking.
