So, strategy-wise, just write down everything that leaves your teacher's mouth and then the last three weeks put together an outline.
For one of my classes, I outlined straight from my in-class notes, and it was definitely the way to go.
On the other hand, if I had tried to do that for my civpro or conlaw class, or one of my electives, I probably would have gotten a B-...if I was lucky. Not all professors actually teach the subject in class. I had several profs who would come to class just wanting to either babble or stroke their own egos, and going to class was essentially useless.
TL;DR - whether this will work depends entirely on the prof/class.
