How to make key-notes compendium for Mains?

edited December 2016 in Preparation FAQs
Many hard workers on this forum have advised newbies to take a copy of Mains syllabus and write :

1.Definitions,
2.Facts,
3.Data,
4.Anything frequently mentioned in newspapers;

for every sub topic.

And then revise this compendium again and again so you have a little something on everything.

Some questions:

1. How to do this in GS-1?The syllabus is huge so should we leave it out?

2. What kind of data should we add: Govt reports/Global reports or indices ?

Would be grateful if someone could answer.
