But how do they do it in a manner that the notes are concise, effective, readable in a short time, all at once. After all they will need to go through these small notes for IAS exam before the preliminary and/or the Main in just a few days or even hours.

Pattern Method: For this, begin the topic at the centre of the page. Each line radiating from it represents branch of the main idea. Each point is written as briefly as possible using a key word or a phrase. It is a better method to adopt because.
