Default CA notes: how to prepare 'em?

Respected seniors, first off thanks for helping us with our never ending problems after a huge debate on selecting opts, i have started off my prep, by prep i mean reading a few topics of dawn and then re-reading them from other sources like express tribune, weekly pulse, kawish, paktribune and many more so that i could gain more and more knowledge but to be very honest i am not following this strategy religiously i know i should :$, soon i will when you guys will tell me how to prepare notes from these topics as i don't have background knowledge of these issues ,yeah havn't got my hands on Imtiaz shahid's contemporary current affairs INSHALLAH by tomorrow i will get it anyhow!
point of creating this thread is just to know how to prepareCA notes, should i write the main points form the source into my notebook and mention the date infront of topics so that i could go back to the same date's newspaper anytime i need to! or i should cut the topics from newspaper and strt pasting them, it will take too long i guess? i cant prepare the detailed notes now because then i will have to keep changing them utill dec , have your say seniors?

ms faryal , maintain a seperate register , make an index of all strategic issues and alocate 10 pages to each issues. Ie energy crisis 1 to 10 povert 10to 20. dawn is best for css candidates. make notes of each important topic. Plz dont opt cut paste policy write in ur own words. In the beginning there would be hurdles but by the time u wil see the difference . Questions regarding any problem are welcomed

Thanks Raj, i have already got a register for CA but havent commenced writing anything
what i have planned is i will practise writing first on rough plain papers along with noting down the main points from dawn and other sources in my register, the point when i feel that my writing has improved then i will go for preparing notes from those written points in my register,what say?

ms faryal according to me u at once start writing on ur main register. In the beginning u make mistakes but u ll see improvement. But all this exercise should be done on same register. There s another advantage that by reviewing ur notes after sometime u will judge ur mistakes and beauty in ur writing even u can rectify ur mistkes grammitically and vocab. In anut shell same register should b used and use different colour pencils for writing i e red for causes green events and blue for results

ms faryal for any further information regarding ca u can contact my skype and i believe it would benefit u alot *********

AOA,
sister u r looking so overwhelm with current affairs subject . plzzzz dont worry about this subject believe me.
just do 1 thing till september 2012.only read dawn newspaper and mark all difficult words and find out their meanings and then try to use them in ur daily life
then
in editorials only read important issues and if u want then cut them and collect them and thats all
do nothing except this. ok!!!!

then after september 2012 buy world times quarterly 4 only.
dont even buy imtiaz shahid's book.because in this book concepts have discussed in difficult manner.

on the other hand u will find world time megazine very interesting and issues covered in this are discussed in quite easy manner and the approach they have used is very good.

and after this still if u really want to do alot for this subject then read
monthly world time megazine .

dont read 4 or 5 megazines because this paper only demands clear concepts and knowledge about national and international issues and u can easily cover them from above mentioned megazine and method.

preparing point for this paper from this month is quite early . make them after september.

believe me i have given u best suggestion and u will find it very beneficial.

BEST WISHES and regards

recent trends in papers show that one can easily attempt the paper if one is permanent reader of dawn. 2nd point is notes making should start from first day because it is not mere one subject specific material. Indirectly a person gets command in good writing skills, fluency and succeed in establishing a bridge between his ideas and pen. So notes making is the name of writing practice for me. One can hone one,s writing skills in this way.
