this week, solve your...

class notes

(forward to all the students you know!)

that is a three-year graduate program in two small file boxes.


how to keep all those notes, papers, and readings manageable, and not waste a ton of spiral notebooks you'll never use up?

1) tear your notes out of the notebook

2) binder clip notes, readings, papers, tests together; label with metallic or paint marker

3) make sure to save the course syllabus, which can be used to document credit requirements

4) use notebook for next class and the next, and the next, and the next... until it is EMPTY!
