I’ve used both methods and I want to help you decide which one is the best for you and the prons and cons of each one of them. The first thing you need to consider is weight and the extent of your study materials. In the first binder I have all my handwritten notes from last year and the second binder I have my notes from the last semester. As you can see, the binder in the right has much more notes and that’s because it’s a lot easier to type condensed information instead of writing it. Also, be aware that when you type your notes you end up summarizing them a lot less and are more prone to including irrelevant information in your binder. Another thing you need to consider is how you want you notes to look. Typing and printing your notes is a lot effortless and it achieves an overall cleaner and tidier look. Typing notes is not as near as fun as handwriting them because you can’t use all of your colored pens and highlighters as go along. However, if you can’t afford to lose time cleaning up your notes, typing and printing them will surely achieve the most perfect result. You also need to consider the costs of printing your notes. Sometimes it can be cheaper than handwriting them; it all depends on the kind of printer you have, the paper you print it on and if you print in high or low quality. I will be honest – handwiritng your notes is much more fun than typing them. However, I found out that I wasn’t being as thorough as I wanted while taking notes and also, I had to take separate batches of notes – lecture notes, discussion notes and textbook notes; and with a computer, I am able to incorporate them in the same document, move things around, and then print them after that chapter or module is complete. I would suggest handwritten notes for anyone who: • DOesn’t have access to a printer; • Likes to customize notes and use coloured pens; • Doesn’t take classes with a heavy load of information; • Prepares classes beforehand • Has access to other materials, like textbooks, which they can rely on if something is missing from their notes. Also, if you are curious on how I color code and take my handwritten notes, you can check out my video by clicking the link in the description box below. I would suggest typed notes to anyone who: • Types a lot faster than they write; • Has access to economic printing at home; • Prefers a cleaner, crisp look. • Has really thorough and detailed classes; • Doesn’t have access to study materials and attends lectures as the primary source of information. If you want to know how I format my college notes and type them, this video will show you all the essentials. You can find the video listed in the description box below. As for me, I’ve just started my senior year in college and I will stick to my typed notes. I found out that whenever I was in a rush I would type my notes at home and stick them in my binder. In the end of the semester my binder turned into a hybrid of handwritten and typed notes. Also, I was skipping some essential information in class and I had trouble organizing different sources of information for the same chapter or module I was taking. Typing everything in my laptop allowed me to customize the order of my notes, incorporate new things into older documents and have a more flexible system. I hope you’ve enjoyed this video!
