latex : managing vertical space in itemize

A useful package to reduce space before and inside an itemize/enumerate command.

\usepackage{enumitem}

\setlist{nolistsep}

nolistsep remove all extra spaces in itemize and enumerate call.

If you just want to  remove vertical space (not the space before and after ), instead of nolistsep you prefer use :

\setlist[1]{itemsep=-5pt}
