    Hey all,

    Was wondering what the best way to keep lecture notes is, i tryed to keep a seperate a4 pad for each module and keep all notes in that pad, but when it rained heavy last week, the water somehow go into my bag and ruined my pads , so is taking notes out each night and putting them in a ringbinder the best way for organising notes etc?

    thanks,

    Definitely! What i do is take a pad of paper each day, write notes in that then write them out and put into ringbinders at night.

    remember to number your pages in case your folder gets too full and falls apart.

    I used a large A4 folder to store all my notes in with dividers between particular lecture courses and a smaller folder to store the most recent lecture notes in to take to lectures.

    Lever arch files, different colours for each paper, divided within each for each week's essay work. I leave them in my rom and carry around an A4 folder with some dividers in for each week's work.

    I also have a reasonably waterporoof bag and a rain cover for it! Perhaps scrunch up a couple of carrier bags in the bottom of your bag, so that if it's raining you'll have them to put your work in so it won't get wet.

    If you have a graphics tablet or a tablet PC, you can draw into OneNote

    I REALLY hope you're taking regular backups of any computerised notes you have...

    Hard-drive format = COMPLETELY lost notes, etc etc. A4 paper will never crash, perform an illegal operation, have network problems, run out of virtual memory, be stolen, be broken, be afflicted with the Blue Screen Of Death, etc etc!

    Of course, they're saved on the college network, on my web hosting, on my laotp, my desktop, and my USB stick

    Although I don't have any exams, so they're just for assignments etc.!

    But its just not worth it with maths notes. Its so much easier to read and write maths notes on paper.

    I use diff methods every few weeks, lol! Get bored easily! Anyway atm i'm doing:

    Have one big folder thing that has all notes/handouts in atm (hardly got any) and as it's a thin folder take it with me to all lectures, then i also take a pad of paper. I take whatever notes, then write them up in the evening, that way i can look over what we covered (as i'm not really 'with it' in lectures (daydreaming!!)) and if there's any areas i'm v confused about can make a note and ask

    throughout my first year, my notes kind of ended up in a big pile on the floor until the pile got too big or i had to start revising.

    i've got some ringbinders as well, but only cheap ones, as i tend to have to throw them away at the end of the year (=> you cannot imagine the frustration of realising that you have to buy new binders and hole punchers EVERY year just because of the lack of international standardisation, in my case, sweden->england-> canada (all of which use different and incompatible systems...) *end of rant)
