The Cornell method of notetaking is as follows:
1. Record what is said on the right side of the paper;
2. Reduce the information into fewer words or headings on the left side of the paper;
3. Recite the information to be remembered, covering the information on the right side of the paper and using the headings as prompts;
4. Reflect on the material and incorporate it into previous knowledge; and
5. Review the information periodically to facilitate its permanent storage into memory.
