Student Notes are those red study guides you see around campus. We offer study guides for many classes offerred at the University of Georgia. The study guides are compiled by students enrolled in the class with a GPA of at least 3.4. Included are the student's notes from lecture, illustrations, and information from other sources.
How can I be a notetaker?
If you have a 3.4 GPA and take great notes, we want you. Go aheand and apply online, or drop by the store and fill out an application. We review all applications after classes start. Interviews are scheduled about five days into the new semester.
Notetakers are paid by the test. You earn a flat rate based on the number of pages in each set of notes. The average is $75. You also get 5% of net sales. If you have three tests, you earn three paychecks. The top notetaker made over $500 from her final exam set of notes. She went skiing during her vacation. I think she works for the FBI now.
How much are Student Notes?
Student Notes are about $10 per test
When can I get Student Notes?
Current Student Notes are available about 5 days before your test
Will they help me get an A?
Yes, if you study them, get plenty of sleep, and eat a good breakfast.
How did this get started?
In 1992 a couple of UGA students were frustrated with the auditorium style of teaching. It is easy to get behind or a little lost in a room with 300 other students. They paid one of the really smart students in the front of the class to use their notes. Suddenly their grades went up and everything was making sense. They pooled their money, hired a few notetakers and bought a used photocopier. Today we do our best to hire a notetaker in every class with over 100 students.
Note: We recommend these study guides be used as a supplement and not a substitute for attending class. Student Notes are not required course materials. If there are any discrepancies, please follow your instructor's information.
