i tried the taping bit for a short period of time. abandoned it. time is tooooo precious. and, what is the purpose of your notes....to study and do well in your class or to make a neat folder to walk out with? i gave up this practice. during my undergrad and grad school, i used a steno pad for each class. by focusing on the lecture as i was listening to it helped me retain material better. at the end of each day, i went back to each class steno pad and highlighted the important material from the lectures that day....sort of like a mini review...while the info was fresh. then when it came time to study for a test, i focused on the highlighted material. the stenos are small, compact and easy to study from. the format i used to write in them were outline form. i did ok. came out of grad school (x2) with a gpa of 3.97...not bad, so i guess it worked...at least for me. but, time is a precious thing. devote more of your time to the material, not the package. you'll exhaust yourself if you don't.
