Note-Taking Made Easy
First Edition
Judi Kesselman-Turkel and Franklynn Peterson

Study Smart Series

This STUDY SMART reference guide series, designed for students from junior high school through lifelong learning programs, teaches skills for research and note-taking, presents strategies for test-taking and studying, provides exercises to improve spelling, grammar, and vocabulary, and reveals secrets for putting these skills together in great essays.

Note-Taking Made Easy makes a thorough and systematic presentation of note-taking, including ways to decide what is worth noting, how to organize notes, and shortcuts in note-taking.

There is excellent advice on how to read a nonfiction book . . . [and] hints on how to keep your mind on the business at hand. . . . The book is inexpensive, written in a chatty style, and printed in larger than usual type. . . . I recommend it enthusiastically . . . because next to a blow dryer, this little soft-covered book is the best thing to tuck into that college-bound bag.”
—Bernice Roer Neal, Culpeper Virginia News
