My class notes might not look very beautiful or decorative(there are many of my classmates who spend their time doing decorations with different colored pens!)but they are neat nonetheless and of course they fall into the category of being legible(as many of my friends use them before the exam,they can obviously read them otherwise they wouldn't have passed!). But there are some teachers who just don't seem to understand that we aren't sitting with tape recorders and so that we can write down what they are saying,they need to maintain a decent speed limit!

Hi! My lecture notes is very messy, it seems to be the most messy one in our class! I always write something that I think on it!

hehehe! But you can still make it up. Well even if it's messy it's still understandable. No one can change the way you are except if you choose to, maybe your a good student either...

My notes are a complete tip... they're actually a joke! they make as much sense to me as to the person five rows behind me but I still somehow manage to pass the exams...

good! go! go! hope you take this topic a learning lessons that it's not only in our lecture notes that we have to be clean or neat. In ourselves being neat or clean is a choice but it helps us in every aspects of our lives, right?

My lecture notes are always messy. But for subjects that i like they are well organized. For others I just keep on taking notes so that i dont fall asleep. Since in our college there are guides that are specifically tailored for exams i dont need the notes very much.

A neat and organized student will always advance further in their chosen career. If a person cannot read their own writing how can a person learn what they are suppose to in order to be the best for their client. It should go without saying.

Very well said! I agree that we all have to be organized and neat in our lecture even it will be time consuming but it benefits us in our future.

I type most of my notes out, so they tend to be very neat. However, I remember when I used to take handwritten notes. Needless to say, there is a pretty good reason why I type on the computer now. My handwriting would make a doctor blush. I actually ran across some old notes from like my junior or senior year of high school. Abbreviations, random writing in the margins, smudged, but I'm pretty sure I could read it then because I know what I meant. With a fresh mind, I cannot make heads or tails of everything.

Ow! Well it's up to them making their notes very beautiful or decorative as you said. Sometimes some people expresses themselves through creativity. And you can't do nothing that's their choice what important are the lessons the teacher had taught to his/her class. It's a waste of time doing decorations if they hav'nt learned anything at all...

i hold the same idea with you. Though it feels cool when i settle down the lecture notes fast and messy, but when i come back to review it's a great pain to look at this.

Sometimes we have to be fast jotting down notes/lecture even if it is messy coz we we begin to worry about what's happening in the class. Keeping your notes so clean can also be a time consuming but it also helps...welcome to myLot!

Way back when I was still a student, my class room notes in almost all my subjects are not organized, its not messy but its not also clean however I am comfortable using them. By the way I graduated with high grades and thanks to my Not too Messy and not to clean notes.
