Best note taking methods?!

Hi Friends!

Started the Data Analyst in Python course today! What is the best way to take notes if there is a way- I’m just making sure I learn well and come out of this ready to take on the job market and I do believe taking great notes can be beneficial. Just wanted to know if anyone had a method that worked well for them. Thank you and I hope you all are well :slight_smile:
