What is the objective of preparingnotes?
Everybody does not preparenotes for the same reason. While some do it to understand things,others do it for revision prior to the examination. You have to figure out the objective of your notes and prepare them accordingly.
Keep your notes brief and to the point

Graphical representation helps
Graphical representation helps us learn better and faster. Therefore, you can use maps and graphs in the notebook so that you can easily remember what you read the last time about a particular topic.
Keep the notes handy
Preparing notes for SBI PO 2018 exam is not enough, the next part is maintaining the notes in a proper way so that you can refer to them whenever required. Maintaining a notebook is better rather than loose pages as pages may get mixed-up and lost. If you are preparing notes on loose pages, maintain them in a proper orderly fashion in a folder.
Build Contents Page to your notes
This is very important because you will not go through each and every page while revising before the examination. Make a list of content and keep it at the beginning of the notebook according to the page numbers so that you can refer your notes quickly at any time.
Keep the notes updated
This is very important especially in case of general awareness section and current affairs. Never ever forget to update the old data because it may cost you marks in the actual exam if you do not have the latest information in your notes.
Technology is very helpful for keeping notes
In this age of technology, with so many tools available, you should invariably use technology for making notes for any examination. This will save you the trouble of preserving the notes since you can take back-up in your computer and refer to the same anytime.
Use markers and highlighters

Organization is very important
Merely preparing notes that are mixed up and confusing won’t help you crack the SBI PO 2018 exam. Therefore, it is equally important to maintain notes in an organized way. Give headings and sub-headings in the notes so that you can refer to the required part without any hassle. Try using small sentences for taking notes. Divide the notes into segments so that you can go back to them easily.
