I have an Olympus too. I feel that it was key to my success in school. I recorded everything. I didn't listen to everything--it depended on the quality of the particular lecture. Like you said, if I had a professor who just read the PPs, I'd erase the folder. Otherwise, I'd download it into the computer and send to friends who needed it. I also burned it onto disc so I could play lectures while driving. I listened to lectures while getting ready in the morning, while cooking, shopping etc...It's amazing how much you miss in class the first time around. I also listen to lectures on fast speed while reading the correlating notes/PPs. I like the Olympus a lot. The one problem that everyone seems to have is with the battery cover falling off. Mine is gone. I'd put a rubber band around it or some tape.
every class/school is different. I just finished 3 semesters worth of med surg classes and im soooo thankful im done!
Just make sure you understand the nurses role in all situations. Understand the big picture/ grand scheme of things. Relate all things to real life, and ask; what would the NURSE do in this situation?
And last but not least... Study your buns off. Dont neglect the book.. im astonished when I hear people say they dont read. Med/surg at my school are the toughest classes, but if you work hard, you will succeed!
Has anyone else had success with recording lectures?If so, how do you use the recordings (when do you listen, how many times, etc.)?And, what kind of recorder did you buy?

I did like recording lectures until I left my recorder in class one day.
I found it very helpful, especially if you arent a fast writer.
No stressing that you missed something, very nice, and couldnt hurt to have one.

I totally agree! I really like my Olympus as well.
:twocents: ... While I've never had a problem with the battery cover falling off, I found that the Olympus did not give enough indication (sometimes I think it was the VERY LAST MINUTE) that the battery was going to run out! Talk about scrambling. Just always have spare batteries on hand.
Hi there! I recently graduated and the one thing I can tell you is be prepared. Don't wait until the last minute!There is no way to be able to remember it all. A great tip I got that has never lead me wrong is..know your lab values and what to expect if they are off and secondly---remember Maslow..physiological needs always come before psychological needs.Good Luck!
