I just use the recorder app on my phone. The sound comes through clearly, and I can plug it into my car speakers to listen to lectures as I drive to and from school/clinicals :)

Agree with PP, just make sure your school policy allows for its use. Some do not.

In my day they did not have recording phones, I used a Pearlcorder. Now I think it is always a good idea to have a backup device. Also, in those days instructors were more agreeable to recording of their lectures. Nowadays many do not allow it at all saying it is against school rules, as I've read here more than once. So, you should be certain to ask.

I used a small handheld recorder during lectures, after asking for permission from the instructor. I never had an instructor not allow it, but definitely check your school's policies and get the individual instructor's permission first.

Any Staples, Office Max, or other office supply store carries them for a reasonable price.

I use an app called 'SuperNote'. In addition to recording the lecture, you can add types notes or take pictures (of say a powerpoint) that attach to the recording. I then upload them to dropbox so I can listen to them on my computer. I also like this way as opposed to a hand held recorder, because I can plug it into my car and listen while I am driving. That time adds up!
