How do I take notes while reading?

All text and questions pages provide the opportunity to add notes for later review. To add or view your notes, click the Notes icon in the upper right part of your screen (looks like a paper with a plus sign). This will provide an area to add a note and list all notes previously created for that topic. You have the ability to associate the note with a given section on the page using the drop-down that appears in the panel. To hide the notes screen, click on the X.

Once you have created a note, you can remove it by clicking the Delete button associated with that note.

Once you create a note, a yellow circle with a number will appear over the notes button. This alerts you to any notes you have created on a page.
