i was never good at taking notes, what should i focus on when im taking notes during the culinary foundation 1,2,3?
and what are some extra advice from the culinary experts that i can take in before starting school?
I would focus more on listening and understanding than note taking. If notes are needed.... take them in the book you are learning from. Hi-lighters are your friends. Margins are your friends. Voice recorders are your friends(if you are using a recorder, write down the time that the important thing was said in your margin so you can play it back later). Anything that will allow you to spend more time listening and asking questions to get a better understanding of the concepts is what you need to do. If you are not used to it and you are trying to take notes you might miss some very important points being taught. If you hear the instructor repeat something they have already said... write it down in the margin, or hi-light and star/underline it in your book.

And for God's sake... remember that people with Cs get the same ephin diploma people with As get. Would you rather have a doctor that was top of their class or one that barely passed? Sometimes the ones that barely made it are better... but not often in my experience. Take this chit seriously. You will be representing all of us once you get out.
Confusius say """ One who talks repeats what he already knows.. One who listens learns."""
Like any school, you should take notes on anything that seems important to you. But if you're really into the culinary scene, you'll more than likely pay close attention and that's the best way to learn. Your instructors will no doubt hand out a syllabus and that's always a good indication of what you should be centering on. Just work hard at it.
