    Im on a gap year and was just curious. Im resitting Business Studies and have got 90+ pages on my pc of detailed revision notes for the whole course. But i know a lot of people who write notes by hand.

    I like writing them all up on my pc because its so easy to add in new things. I ussualy print them all out and stick them in a book so i can revise from them easy. Does anyone else type their notes on their computer??

    I'd write them by hand myself, but obivously 90+ pages would make your hands very; very tired. I only write them by hand because I find I remember it easier, and it feels like my work rather than someone elses.

    Paper, feels like it goes in easier when I'm writing them up. When I'm on the pc I usually get distracted by other things.

    I write all my lecture notes by hand. I did start doing them on the computer at one point instead, but I don't actually revise from the computer. And I remember things better if it's written in my own hand.

    I do have, like, lecturer copies of notes on my laptop though, just in case I lose mine or something. And there's always access to powerpoints on Moodle (Glasgow's online learning thing).

    I always write my notes by hand. I tried doing them on the computer, but they didn't sink in because I can type fairly quickly.
