That happens to me all the time. I end up writing notes and not having time to understand while I write. You are not alone!

Everyone does it, so don't worry about it. I do it at university and hope to Christ they don't ask me a question.

Actually, dictation machine sounds like a good idea, certainly for university lectures to come. I wonder how many people use them! :confused: As for school, I don't think you'd be allowed, and if you are, you'll get some funny looks from the teachers and pupils alike.

University is just like being at college. They still teach in the same way, but more people are willing to work and attend. Being in a lecture though is like being in the cinema with a man at the front talking - continuously.

They still write things on the board.

My uni put slides up but you can print them off the internet which saves on the writing down you only have to write down key points. I tend to take a lot of notes I would take at least 6 sides of A4 per hour lecture but its all down to individual notetaking style.
