Learn how to take notes effectively using the charting method!

What is charting?

When you use the charting note-taking method, you use a table or a spreadsheet structure to organise information into different categories or topics.

How does it work?

  1. Divide your page into separate columns.
  2. Give each column a heading or a label. Think about how you want to organise your notes to identify the most useful headings.
  3. Enter notes under the relevant column.

When would you use it?

  • To help you prepare for exams, tests or tutorials.
  • To make notes when you are reading for your assignments.
  • To organise information so you can easily see relationships or make comparisons between different ideas or concepts.

Here is an example:
