Here are two study tips from over 1,500 tips submitted by students and teachers
I use index cards as note cards. I put only one idea on a card when I'm reading. I also write where the information came from. I can carry the cards with me for review and can put them together into categories. When I no longer need a card I just throw it away.

Don't Assume Understanding
Teachers often make the mistake of asking students if they understand something. Students will almost always say that they do, even when they don't. Instead, ask them to explain it to you. You can then expand their understanding.
Listening for Verbal Signals
Encourage your students to listen for verbal signals as you and other teachers lecture. Focus on statements that signal key concepts (e.g., most important), support for a point (e.g., for instance), differences (e.g., on the other hand), and summarization (e.g., in conclusion).
Your students will be more effective note takers if they pay attention to these verbal signals.
