Color pencils, highlighters, and a whiteout are all good ideas to bring to class. Use different colors as the professor might use them to separate ideas of the material.
Keeping your class notes separated is all a good idea. Either in folders or taking notes in different notebooks, staying organized is key to taking good notes.
Always arrive to class on time. If you arrive late you miss note taking time. If you arrive early you wont have the chance to miss a thing!
Reading the material ahead of time might make it easier for you to take notes, and will even help you in understand what the professor says!
Use short cuts in your notes. Learn to abbreviate words and use bullet points. Anything on the exam for example you could write a large letter T next to that part of your notes.
