Some Beginner Questions
I recently discovered ZK . This seems to overcome most of the stumbling blocks in effective note-taking.
I know how the method works but there are a few things that i want clarification/tips on.
The first question is about search and retrieval from ZK. I have read some people do not use tags for search and retrieval purpose. how do they search their ZK effectively? I guess only by note titles or search by a keyword they have in mind? But the problem i see with only having a title is that one may not remember them or the title may not accurately capture the though of the note. Tags seems to work ok, but they have a problem of their own: How many tags to use and which tags to use that makes retrieval efficient and effective. Tags may be too broad or narrow too.How do you go about retrieval problem and which approach has stood the test of time for you?
I also read people use structure notes. I dont know what they are and how they are used for retrieval purposes. Please shed some light on them as well.
Second question: When do u think branching is most useful from a note e.g. A1 A2 A3?
Third question I have seen people dumping tons of sentences on a single note which seems to, though not necessarily, contradict atomicity/preciseness of a note. How many sentence should a note have?
These question may have been addressed earlier in the forum but i thought people might have changed their perspectives from the last time they posted about these questions and other beginners may not have to dig deep to find answers to these questions.
