Good note taking does not come easy at first, it takes time and practice like anything else. At first, you might want to write every single thing that the teacher says, which isn’t the smartest thing to do. I would start out with writing the key words that you think will be important in the future. Then, you can gradually start adding more description and explain more in depth what you think you need to know. Good note taking looks organized, easy to read, and easy to understand. Your notes shouldn’t be scribbles and sloppy. You can take notes anywhere you want and basically any time you want. Good note taking should be something that helps you, not something that you would be forced to do.
