I read the chapter, taking notes on notecards as I go, basing them off of the prof's slides. If it is possible to draw some sort of diagram for the concept (or copy one from the text), I do it on a huge (~8x5) notecard. Things like glycolysis, the lac operon, transcription, translation, anything chemical - it gets drawn in black Sharpie pen, labeled, and colored with colored pencil.
Then I make an outline out of my notecards, using Microsoft OneNote. Love this program. It is a lot like Word, but you can click anywhere on the page and start typing. You can paste pictures easily, too. I will often move pics over from the instructor's powerpoints.
