In any school situation, what the instructor or lecturer says in the classroom may be as important as any single book or article assigned for reading.
Of course, some teachers communicate better than others. But it's wise not to be too quick to criticize any teacher or discount what he says in class. A major reason for listening closely is that even the most inept instructors will usually be directly involved in devising and grading your tests. Lectures are one way to determine how the teacher thinks and what he's likely to include on exams. So the better you can understand how your teacher's mind works, the more impressive your performance is likely to be on his tests.
Even under the best of circumstances, taking effective notes in class can be tedious. And the challenge with some disorganized lecturers may seem downright impossible.
