iPad Mini - A&P?
- 0Would 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.
- 0Quote from tryingtohaveitallHm .. 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.Do you want us to say yes?
- 0Quote from StephalumpOf 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.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!

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.
- 0May 5, '13 by umbdude, CNAI 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.
- 1May 5, '13 by Best_Name_EverI 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
