iPad is working well for me so far, I have downloaded all of the books through the app vital source bookshelf, so whether or not I am connected to the Internet I can read whenever.
I take the iPad with me so when I was at the dr. Today for example i took it out and continued reading cho. 1 of pharmacology.
The notes function is something i am still working with. For that I always prefer to handwrite anyway... So carrying a notebook to jot down information and transcribe information (for me it also helps go cement the concepts to see it,hear it, write it).
All in all so far i am pleased. i think a laptop would do well also, would allow you the ability to cut and paste into word documents and complete assignments all in one place.
I understand the apprehension about new and electronic books.... I am hopeful that it continues to work well but will make surer to budget for the paper books should i need them at some time.
Good luck Melissa... Let us know how the books are working for you as well,
Lowiie- I thought the exact same thing about the pocket protector... I ended up getting a white one (with pink accessories :)) from medsaver, although after reading over the materials it does not specifically mention color anywhere. To be safe I might get a white one as a backup, would hate to have a technicality interfere with clinicals. :)
and no! No idea about the raffle and i think i bought a total of 10 tickets!
