Microsoft OneNote
« on: August 07, 2006, 10:50:16 PM »
Anyone have a review they could offer?

Is this worth buying?  Is there something better or does Word work just fine?

Check back a few threads, theres another discussion thread on this topic that will be more informative than starting a new one...

Most importantly, at least one of the other threads has a link to download a trial copy of One Note.  You can test it out yourself and see if it will help you better than MS Word.  If you can't find the thread, just go to Microsoft's website and search for the demo.

i love it. i got it for 16 bucks on ebay and then my brother gave me his free copy that  he got from school- go figure.

its neat- it has folder tabs and subsections in each tab. I was planning to have a tab for each class and then each subsection would be  case/notes for that day. Its basically a electronic notebook. I know it'll keep me organized

Make sure that you check out the power toys for OneNote as well...they have one that with a click of an icon you can copy a web page into your notes...pretty cool.

I dont know if you can still do it, but a few weeks ago you could download the 2007 beta version for free. Maybe that might be worth checking out before you buy it?

Note that the 2007 version won't be coming out for a bit.  If you want it from the start of law school, you need to get the 2003 version.

I meant the beta version for 2007, and its already out. I dont really know what they changes are with the beta version (mainly because I dont have the 2003 version.)

I tried OneNote during 1L first semester then switched back to word second semester. I'm staying with Word... its easier to use and backup.

I got the Beta of 2007.  I really like it.  I can't tell when it will expire.  It seems a lot like 2003, but they made notebooks easier to manage.
