My recent observation about class notes is that they are to the point of totally useless. I like to take notes during the class. And then I seldom, if ever, go back and check them. Most of the time, I give myself console of being a good student because I take notes quite diligently. The biggest function of my class notes is that they are there. For a lot of people who are learning Chinese, it is quite true that they never review their notes. They may have vocabulary cards they go back often, but practically nothing else.

Recently I made an effort of reviewing my old notes. Then the real reason dawned on me. Notes are boring. It's in a fragmented and chaotic manner. Therefore it really is fine not to take them too seriously. However, I am not so sure if I can ever dispense this habit. Probably I really should.
