wanderingwondering Posted March 11, 2014 Share Posted March 11, 2014 (edited) Hi everyone, I suspect that this has been discussed to death, but I'm really curious and in need of some tips. I'm starting a PhD program in cognitive and developmental psychology in the fall, and I'd really like to use the months ahead to explore foundational works in cognitive science.* The problem is, most of my reading material comes from library books, so I can't annotate or keep them as I would PDF's. How do you keep track of ideas, information, and references from books? My first impulse is to just jot everything down, but I'm sure someone has a more efficient way of doing it. Thanks! *If anyone has anything to add to my reading list, I'd be really happy to hear it! Right now I'm reading Alison Gopnik's Words, Thoughts and Theories and Susan Carey's Conceptual Change in Childhood, but I have Concepts, Kinds, and Development and Vision waiting on my shelf... I'm broadly interested in Theory of Mind, naive theories, and conceptual representations. Edited March 11, 2014 by wanderingwondering Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
