    Paper is good for quantitative based work, where as laptops are good for qualitative as you can edit more.

    I usually use laptop for making quick notes on the lectures whether they are quantitative or qualitative. Easier to edit. Paper when I am lazy and have forgotten my laptop.

    Although if you are just starting economics this year at uni would suggest keeping to paper for your mathsy modules. It's just basic stuff that doesn't need statistical programming. Good luck

    Paper is a million times better for taking notes. You can draw things easily, scribble stuff down quickly - the important thing when taking notes is speed!

    What I do is buy a small exercise book for each module I take, and just write my notes for each module in those little exercise books. That way I never lose my notes and they a perfectly in order for revision.
