I found that using paper and a pen got me my best grades . . . so I'd say that any computer program is more a hindrance than a help.
I <3 One Note.
I have always found that computers make it hard for me to concentrate, I just can't manage to focus. I plan on using pen and paper in class, then typing my notes up as a part of going over them... I hope.
I don't get how people survive class without the internet to take away the moments of boredom. In all honesty class is useless. Most of my professors play hide the ball and confuse more than help. Only one of my professors holds meaningful class discussions. The others feed us mindless dribble, and in between the bull pull out points of relevant law that you already know (if you were smart enough to buy commercial outlines). People are going to say that you need to learn how your professor tests, and i will say in retort "that is what practice tests and office hours are for."
