    How do I copy and paste equations from the textbook pdf to word?
    I just want to make my own notes. And make them as fast as possible.

    imo stop using word for mathematics and use LyX or LaTeX instead. If you're a coder go for LaTeX. If you want a nice GUI go for LyX.

    I don't think there is a way to copy equations from pdf to word.

    Hhhhmmm...if you really want to continue that route and there is already a pdf document with the formula and all you want to do is write your own notes and put the formula there...I would say use a "print-screen" kind of program that allows you to just grab a screen area, enclose the formula, print-screen it and paste into the word document.
