Most effective way to use your lesson recordings?

I've seen suggestions on other threads, but I'd like to get more of your thoughts on what is the most effective way to learn from one's lesson recordings. What do you find most helpful? Listening to it start to finish? Or just focusing on certain parts of the lesson? Listening while you're actually practicing, or outside of your practice time (like while you're commuting)? Do you try to go over the recording several times before your next lesson, or is once or twice enough?

I know these might be basic questions, but I'm trying to structure my learning and practice time more effectively, so am curious about what other people do.

Listen and take notes.

Time consuming, but it works for me.

I listen and take notes (when I'm good about it!)... I don't feel the need to listen more than once after I've taken notes. I can just refer to the notes if I need to... but I'm sure it's different for everyone.
