Magoosh Video Lessons: Note-taking Very Time Consuming...Thoughts? [#permalink]

For anyone that used Magoosh for their preparation and used their 3-month plans, did you write your own notes while watching the video lessons?

How did you go about remembering/understanding what you had learned in lessons that you had watched the video?

I'm finding it that watching the videos and taking your notes is very time-consuming. Especially when their study plans just say "Watch Magoosh lesson videos - the next six lessons."

Though taking notes on the videos is helping me a lot, I feel that I'm falling behind schedule. Usually, something that should take one day, is taking me two days to complete.

Any help and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Note taking is a one time activity. It may help you certainly in your next part of preparation i.e., taking mocks/revising/analyzing questions.
If you find it very time consuming, you can take one of the several notes available online and modify them according to your need.
But make sure you understand what is written in it and preferably this should help you.
As for coming to study plan, if the magoosh seems too much you can certainly make changes to your plan and go at your own pace of understanding.
No plan/method is perfect for everyone. :)

I agree with Nevernevergiveup. Notes are useful. Keep in mind that watching videos is probably not going to be enough, and that you will still need to put in a lot of effort (even if you're being told otherwise).
