Organizing old class notes

  1. I like to keep some of my old class notes, etc for future reference- things like Chem, Anatomy, etc that will be useful for me in Nursing School.

    But how do I keep all this organized??!! How do you organize all your old class notes? I am not sure what to keep and what to throw out because it seems that everytime I get rid of something from a class I end up needing

    I haven't really organized anything, but kept my A&P 1/2 notes in separate binders, which are arranged in chapters. I've also kept my chem and a&p books just in case I needed it again.

    Same here - I used the highlite pen on the book a lot more than i actually made notes, but what notes I did take along with all handouts, etc I put in a seperate binder for each subject

    I burn them and scatter the ashes, then note which direction I sent them flying in. Just kidding. I keep them in individual 3 ring binders. I'll probably toss them all eventually, I have my books as references and they are easier to look things up in.

    I am just keeping the books. The lectures covered the material in the book, so there really isn't anything in my class notes that isn't in the books.

    Ive kept the A&P book and notes. I just put the notes in a binder. I know the notes better than the entire book (since we didnt cover the whole book) and it gives me both points of ref.

    You know to be honest I have NEVER pulled out my old A&P notes... You pretty much get everything you need in the nursing classes.. I still have them, but as of my final semester have never used them..
