Outlining question

Postby rawrab » Tue Aug 23, 2011 6:57 pm

Do you only put things (concepts, definitions) in your outline that the professor talked about it class? For example, the emmanuel outline is full of tons of crap, but I only have to know the stuff my prof. specifically mentions, right? So in reality, a lot of the stuff in commercial outlines and supplements I can just skip over. Is this the right way to approach outlining?

You've just discovered why commercial outlines are basically a waste of time and money, unless you are completely lost and can't understand what the hell is happening in your class.
