I understand that note-taking is also used or required in simultaneous interpreting, am I right? Is there any difference between note-taking used in simultaneous interpreting and in consecutive one? Because I ever learned the later type, and I feel we lack time in writing. Thanks.

There are many differences in note-taking for simultaneous and consecutive interpreting, since the purpose is a different one.

In simultaneous mode, note-taking serves the purpose of capturing bits that could escape to short-memory, normally numbers or a long series of adjectives.

In consecutive mode, your notes represent the whole structure of a speech. For more information on note-taking, see this question.
