    Re: Vocabulary Question

    To take a note or take notes means that you are jotting down important thoughts during a meeting or lecture that you will refer to/study later. Make a note means that you're going to write down a short reminder for yourself, such as a small "to do" list.

    And please don't use all capital letters in future posts. Thanks!
