I like to handwrite my notes, especially if there are a lot of calculations involved. If you have an iPad, I would definitely recommend using GoodNotes! I used to try squeezing my notes onto a certain number of pages to limit my paper usage, but after using an iPad, I started spacing out each line of notes and using different colors, making it so much easier to read. I think typing out notes is better if you are noting down conceptual information, since it is faster and very organized.

I use handwriting to help myself remember and understand things.

Handwriting is my go-to, I am simply not tech-savvy enough to do e-notes even though the ones people take on iPad look really nice. My notes just consist of the foundations and outlines of concepts since I keep practice problems in a separate notebook. I go to my notes for reviewing concepts and equations.

I typically like to type my notes because I feel like it's easier to save and refer to them later but for this class I hand wrote my notes because of all of the math and graphs.

Yeah lots of studies showing that handwriting notes causes much greater remembrance of the concepts, but I have tried both and typing is much faster and for some people like me with chicken scratch handwriting much more legible.

I like to handwrite on my tablet. I find it easier to add things I missed when reviewing

I usually take notes of the lectures first and then take notes from the textbook. I feel like reading the information just cements the ideas and topics we learned in the lecture. From there, I write on note cards any information that I might need to remember and make an outline with answers and solutions.

Hand-written notes are my best friend. Whenever I study, I just look back at the things I've starred or underlined and boom. I got all my review right there for me.

handwriting on my iPad works well for me to organize everything. I always copy down Dr. Lavelle's slides and also added some quotes.

I use an ipad, I feel like it gives me the best of both worlds but for practice problems I use gold ole fashion paper I don't know why but I like it

I went to a paperless high school and have been using OneNote since. I really like that I still get to handwrite my notes and my notes on the iPad and have it be sync'ed to my laptop as well.

I know that a lot of people take notes online but I always hand write my notes for class. It helps me remember because it forces me to focus more on what I'm writing, without letting my mind drift. It also allows me to draw out diagrams and charts by hand, which helps me remember them as well.

I always take hand written notes because I find the muscle memory helps me to remember more equations and important phrases.

I personally take handwritten notes for my STEM classes because oftentimes there are a lot of diagrams involved so it''s easier that way.

I like handwriting my notes because I feel like there's more flexibility with diagrams and notations and what not. Also, it helps me keep everything together so I can use it later if I take higher level chemistry or need it for future standardized tests.

I like using Goodnotes 5! You can handwrite and then search your handwriting.

I'm definitely a visual learner so writing out my notes definitely helps me retain info. Typed notes are cool as well but writing has worked for me thus far so I stick to it.

I like to take notes on my iPad and write directly on the PowerPoint, noting anything the professor says.
