    Does anyone use an mp3 recorder or voice type recorder to record lectures? Thanks.

    Several of my classmates do, but most of those that had started off with them have stopped - you just don't have time to sit in class for a couple of hours listening to lecture and then spend spend those hours again as you listen a second time.

    The two biggest things I've found helpful - re-writting my notes every couple of days and using flash cards on the pure rote-memorization stuff. That and over the lunch hour quizing classmates.

    at the U of MN, our lectures are video- and audio-recorded and then put on the Web to be viewed anywhere, anytime. I haven't used it a ton, but many of my classmates do, and the few times I have, it's been great. Sometimes you just can't remember if the prof said C1qr2s2 or just C1qrs.
