Hi all,

As you know, engineering is heavily Maths based so I'm wondering what the best way to take notes is?

I was thinking make small abbreviations and notes in lectures and then use the lecture slides in my own time to write out my notes in neat. However, not sure whether I could use a laptop instead?

What do people tend to do?

Probably just a pen and paper. I didn't take much notes because my handouts were generally decent enough (although I probably should have taken more notes for certain lectures).

Depends what works best for you - try different techniques. Personally I never write up notes and never used a laptop during lectures.
