It was my birthday yesterday (30th ). Since I am starting medschool this fall, my wife "bought" me an mp3 player/recorder that I wanted. She actually hasn't bought it yet, she gave me a printout of it from a website. She wanted to make sure it's the one I want. I thought it would be good to have one that doubles as a voice recorder for school. Is this a good idea? Will I get the use out of recorded lectures that I think I will? Are most professors ok with recording them? Thanks!
