    If you are making notes (that you will need to refer to possibly for life) as you are studying for a healtcare career, is it better to type them and keep them electronically? I prefere to handwrite stuff i find it quicker as i can annotate diagrams etc but then i think they can always get lost/damaged etc whereas you can keep typed stuff safe and put it in folders if you choose to.

    Electronic I would say, if you are in a hurry one day and are writing faster, a month down the line you may not be able to understand what you have written. It think that little extra time spend doing it digitally will pay off, its easier to understand, lasts forever, and digital tools offer some cool features for annotations and what not

    You could takes notes by scribbling them down on paper, then type them up on a computer in neat when you get access to one. Print it if you need to, so you have physical copies of them. It's up to personal preference, but I always like to hand write my notes - it's just more convenient with a pen & paper.
