Psychologists have long known that the process of making notes contributes greatly to learning and remembering. Many books dealing with study habits and techniques have been written in which the importance of making good notes is emphasized. However, these books provide little or no help in the actual processes and procedures of notemaking. It is the purpose of this volume to provide this help.In addition to providing instruction in notemaking processes and procedures, this book equips the notemaker with a brief, easy-to-learn writing method -- Gregg Notehand -- with which to make notes much more rapidly and easily than he could with longhand. . . .The units in the book are basically of two types: notemaking and Gregg Notehand.A typical notemaking unit contains:1. A presentation of the fundamentals of notemaking.2. Exercises that apply these fundamentals.3. Practical tips and suggestions for notemaking.4. Exercises in which the student puts these tips and suggestions into practice.A typical Gregg Notehand unit in Part I, which completes the theory of Gregg Notehand, contains a number of principles followed by a list of words or phrases in Gregg Notehand illustrating those principles. This list in turn is followed by a reading and writing practice exercise into which several illustrations of the principles have been woven.A typical Gregg Notehand unit in Part II, which is devoted to the development of greater writing facility, contains drills in the form of word lists designed to strengthen the students knowledge of the theory of Gregg Notehand. These drills are followed by reading and writing practice exercises that will help the student develop the ability to construct outlines rapidly for an ever-expanding vocabulary . . .The key to reading and writing exercises and illustrations of notemaking techniques appears in type in the back of the book, thereby enabling the Gregg Notehand student to make the most rapid progress, especially in the early stages.A Teachers Guide for Gregg Notehand is also available separately.Library of Congress Catalog Card No. 60-14223August 1960-RD-1
