1.3 When is the right time to take notes?

Any time that suits you! Increasingly we live in an age where there is more information than we can possibly hope to deal with. One of the most important skills you (or any of us) can develop is how to cope with all this information. Note taking is just one skill that will help you do this. It is important to get into the habit of making notes, and the best way to do this is to find a method that suits you (and the medium you are working in).
