Do I have to write notes to a handout I already understand when I read it? In English, the key points, we have to understand in an exam, are on the PDF, but I think, I spend too much time on writing notes to it even through it isn't that complex

It’s hard to say without looking at the notes you’re taking (and no, I don’t want you to post images thereof). That said, a couple of thoughts coming from someone who takes a lot of notes. Some texts are simply more “information rich” than others. I can think of books I’ve been researching from where there’s barely anything of note for chapters on end, and then suddenly a vast amount for a while. Needless to say, those chapters with minimal relevant information won’t get a great many notes, while the ones which have lots will get more. It’s quite common, in my experience, to be taking more notes at the start of a research project (or at the start of another bit of it), rather than later on. At the start, you probably won’t know what you don’t know, so everything is relevant. The more you know, though, the more you just need a few little bits of information filled in, so you take fewer notes. Are you perhaps taking the wrong sorts of notes? It can be easy to make notes about everything in a book, even if there’s one specific thing you’re actually researching about. I’m guilty of that sometimes myself, so don’t think I’m pointing the finger at you.

Write on PDF: All You Need to Know

But sometimes, particularly if there is a whole chapter or two which you will never have seen without a little of research (or looking up on Google), the relevant part of a text will just be right before your eyes, or right after you have read it, so you just need to take a couple of lines, and you’re done. It's a skill to recognize things which are right before your eyes, to pick them up without realizing it, and simply take them in. For instance, the time at which you take the notes about a passage.  On a page, it might be one sentence, or the beginning of a chapter, and you have not read the whole thing yet.  It's easy to take some notes about the time, and forget that on other pages it might be one sentence which leads to a scene in a book..
