Thanks for the answers gang! I do have a desktop @ home. And I don't think I'll be using a laptop for taking notes. It's much faster for me to write (and sticks in my brain more) to take notes. I will have time in between classes for research and such--but we have a computer lab and library equipped for that!
I've read certain places that pda's are becoming more popular among the medical fiels. Ijust didn't know how helpful they'd be for a nursing student!
That really depends on you. I am a computer nerd, so it is great for me. I have my Pepid, Taber's, RNotes, Netter (anatomy), 4.0Student (keeps track of assignments, notes, and keeps a running tally of your grade as you input assignments), Merck manual, Big Clock, some other med programs, and a couple of games for mental relaxation. I have a 16 MB internal, 128 MB memory stick installed.
Do what is best for you. Search ebay, though. I got my Sony Clie SJ22 for under $50 including S&H and my memory card was $25 with S&H. Both were new in package!
