College students were assigned to either take their own personal notes or to use full or partial notes that had been distributed to them while listening to a lecture in order to determine the effect of using a preferred or nonpreferred lecture note method on multiplechoice and essay test scores and on post-lecture note preference. The use of personal or partial notes resulted in higher scores on the essay test and students preferring personal or partial notes scored better on the multiple-choice exam suggesting the importance of personally encoding notes. Partial notes preference was most popular both before and after the lecture.
