I learn best is by writing. I always write down things to figure them out. Then I can go back and reread it to lock it in my memory. Also, the exams in this course are short answer and essay questions so I need to know how to write down the ideas not just answer a multiple choice question and my notes help me do that. My notes are organized and accurate and were taken during class. Then after class, I update and organize them. I also went through and highlighted the most important stuff before the test so I could go through the pages for a quick review. There are illustrations throughout that help clarify ideas or processes. They tremendously helped me understand the material. I like to draw pictures because then I will remember the picture and I can use that to put pieces together on the exam and remember the material. The layout of these notes makes them very easy to read because they are not just a long paper of notes there are headings and side notes and arrows for clarification so when I am going through them I am learning.
