iPad Mini - A&P?

  1. 0
    Would an iPad Mini make studying for A&P easier? If it can be helpful in the studying process & taking notes I will purchase one before class starts.

    Thanks!

    Hm .. no. An honest answer will do. Lol (Yes will possibly help w/ my grade; No will save me money-Its a win win situation either way). I just see alot of posts about iPads and how people are able to study well from them in nursing school. Since alot of studying is associated w/ A&P I wanted to know if it would help with that also.

    I use my iPad to take notes and record....I use the inclass app so it has my notes and my lectures all together. You can get a blue tooth keyboard on amazon pretty cheap. I just know I type faster than I can write, and it is easier for me than carrying my laptop.

    I made great grades in A&P before iPads even existed, so I really don't think it's warranted just as a grade booster.

    I have one, I use it religiously, but for me it's a convenience booster, not an academic game changer. Totally worth the money for me, though!

    Of course it won't have anything to do with academics, its just the convenience factor that will help out being that its much more convenient than carrying around a laptop.

    Lol, ok then if youre looking for an honest answer. iPads are awesome. I love mine. I used it for grad school but it certainly wasn't necessary.

    I just recently got one as my birthday present. Must say that I love it. I can download all of the professors power points and just scroll up and down through them. No need to tons of printings, ink, paper etc, plus the battery lasts forever! My classes are 4 hours long and I don't have to worry about sitting by an outlet to plug in a laptop or the inconvenience of carrying one. iPad fits right in my purse even with the Otterbox case.

    I wouldn't say it makes the class easier. I don't think it's easy to take notes with anything except pen and paper.

    However, it's great to have when you study because you can store your powerpoints or other word documents in it. You can carry it around with you and if you want to review something you can. I have the iPad Mini and love it. Regular iPad and laptop are just too big for me to carry around.

    I think it depends a lot on what type of learner you are. I choose to handwrite my notes in class. I cannot type things out or go through the power points on a laptop. I like my notes to be tangible. I learn better that way. Same goes for ebooks, there is no way I'd replace my book for one of those. I do have a kindle fire, but I only use it for non school related things. It might work for you, but I think you need to consider how YOU learn best. Then make a decision based on that
