Review your notes as soon as possible after the lecture. This is the time you fill in those gaps, expand on key words and ideas, highlight areas of uncertainty and areas of importance.
Review your notes again about a week after the lecture. This is the time to quickly test yourself on some of the key areas. This weekly review also serves as pre-reading for the next lecture. It activates your prior knowledge before being exposed to new material.
A monthly review is important to your long term retention of the material. Rehearse important points, amplify points which have become clearer and again, test yourself.
All of these reviews can be done in 10 - 20 minutes per subject. The value of those 10 -20 minutes is equal to hours of re-learning and cramming later in the semester. The next section proves this statement.
