When writing notes for school, can you actually comprehend what you wrote afterwards?

No. It's frustrating because I can read it while I am writing, but afterwards, when we're finished, I can't. This makes me so mad.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 6/30/04 - 9:03:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
Usually I can.
I have the same problem with the randomly made up abbreviations, though.

I do the abbreviations in Civics a lot.. "cttn" can mean Constitution, but so can "const". Pr. means President, or is it Providence?
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 6/30/04 - 8:08:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
I never takes notes.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 6/30/04 - 9:42:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, I have very neat writing. It's not hard to read at all.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 7/22/04 - 3:34:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
Used to. Now I take a tape recorder to class and record important stuff.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 7/22/04 - 3:39:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
For most classes my notes are legible, but I've had some professors who speak really fast, so in trying to keep up with the pace, my notes get sloppier and sloppier.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 7/22/04 - 5:36:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, if I couldn't then I probably wouldn't have written them at all.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 9/18/04 - 11:59:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
nope. i don't remember what i wrote untill i get the note back.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 10/10/04 - 10:28:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
Ya I always try and invent little abbreviations that I think I'll understand afterwards, but I never do.
Usually I'm pretty clear though, I try to write notes in a way that'll it make it very easy for me to study from them after.
I just wish my handwriting wasn't the same as a ten year old boy's.

All most all subjects except Science,which is why I just [barely] passed a major teat with a 70.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 10/10/04 - 11:07:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, but only if I'm paying somewhat attention.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 10/26/04 - 9:59:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't usually write notes at school, just kind of sit there and absorb...
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 10/26/04 - 10:03:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
Usually--my notes are always coherent, though I'll occasionally write them too sloppily to decipher.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 10/29/04 - 1:02:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
Sometimes.. I don't really make school notes. I write notes to friends though.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 11/24/04 - 2:41:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm bad at taking notes, I can always read them and I never have any abbreviations, but I don't write down the stuff that's important for the test, just the stuff that's interesting to me. Notes are frustrating all-around, let's murder them.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 11/24/04 - 2:46:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've gotten better over the past few years about taking notes, thank goodness. I still use random abbreviations though...argh.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 11/30/04 - 10:04:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah I write my notes fairly clear...
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 11/30/04 - 11:12:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
yup i write it in a way i can understand
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 11/30/04 - 11:14:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not usually. Especially if I was falling asleep in the class, then its nothing but scribbles, lol.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 11/30/04 - 11:15:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
lol
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 11/30/04 - 11:46:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
I can as long as I wrote it slowly enough and avoided weird abbreviations.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/1/04 - 12:23:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
There's not really any point in taking notes if you can't understand what you wrote.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/1/04 - 1:04:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
i can b/c i dont take that many notes in class, if i listen i can usually remember what's been said
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 2/15/05 - 5:24:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
Usually, but sometimes when I'm really tired, I start nodding off in class and my notes from those days are mostly unintelligible, there are random marks and any actual writing is very drawn out and hard to read.
