Taking notes during lectures is a lengthy process. Any suggestions to save time.

Use a dictaphone - i'm using one that got good life and easy to use.

You can use your mobile - but i hate it coz it uses up by battery!

Cheers,

It depends how you, individually, best process incoming information. Do you find revising easier from written material, or from audio? Don’t assume you’ll transcribe an audio recording, as doing that manually takes 5:1 longer, and software isn’t flawless yet. Don’t most unis record the lectures anyway, to facilitate revisit and review?

If it helps, I've heard some very good things about the Saimpu digital voice recorder, it has about 8GB of storage space and is rechargeable.

Hey! Id say to always print out the slides with the notes section next to it. I found this easiest! Or take your laptop and write notes directly under the lecture youve downloaded

Well you cant get everything they say down but aas long as you get the key points thats all you should need. Unless sometimes lecturers record the lectures and post them online for you but a lot of lecturers dont like to do this as they think people wont attend. You could ask though and explain how it will benefit you?

Taking effective notes is a skill that you'll develop with practice. You can't write literally every word a lecturer says, so you need to note down the important points for later. You should always supplement this information with your own reading at a later time.
