Handwriting vs typing your notes in college

The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
Today we're gonna be talking about no taking, which no taking method is best. Now, adjusting your note taking methods for whatever class you're taking them for is crucial. The professor talking the PowerPoint stuff covers a majority of what's gonna be on your exam. The reason for this is because when you're typing, you could type a lot faster, and so you want to be taking it as much information as you can. I know you've heard from probably other YouTube videos that you've seen like this, that you want a hand right your notes because it'll make you engage your brain better. When you're condensing your notes after class, that's gonna be more efficient. I would prefer doing that rather than condense your notes as the teacher is talking this only applies if you're a fast hyper. If you're one of those people that types with two fingers like this, I don't know what to tell you, except there's hope. Actually, train your fingers type faster and So I've linked in the description box below a website where you can train your fingers. You can do fun little activities to help you talk faster. Increase your Oh, yeah, Where's per minute? See, you might be wondering, Well, what classes do I typed for? Like I said before, any class where the teachers yapping away, he'll do the fractal algorithm and four planes. You you need to write down as much information as you can in order to ensure an A on the test, for example, I typed for my American history class my introduction to riding class and my religion class. I do not type for my science classes and I'm gonna tell you why you should not type for your math or science classes. You want to hand write for any class where typing is less efficient. So this goes for classes like our math science because you're gonna be drawing diagrams. You're going to be writing numbers and equations and sketching things out, enjoying arrows everywhere. It would be so much less efficient to do that on a computer. You want to be listening to Professor and taking in what they have to say, rather than taking five minutes to try to find the exponents button on your computer. For these types of classes, you're probably gonna have a lot of homework to do, like practice problems. So what you want to do is you want to keep your practice problem work and your lecture notes separate. So this is my chemistry notebook, and I have my lecture notes in the first half of the new book and my other work for my online chemistry homework in the buck. You don't want to keep them together because it makes it harder for you to navigate your election notes on your trial study for them, and it just makes a little bit more if you have, uh, ooh, apple bad. You have an apple. Now, if you have an iPad pro with the apple pencil or keyboard or Microsoft Surface pro or something like that, then you kind of got the best of both worlds. If you're thinking of purchasing an iPad or some sort of tablet where you could write and type on it, I would highly suggest going Thio Best Buy or the Apple Store and testing it out firsthand. I know for the longest time that I wanted to buy an iPad pro and took my notes on that. When I went to the apple store and tried out apple pencil actually didn't like my handwriting looked. So I decided to just go with regular notebooks instead. I haven't regretted it since. Customize your notes further class you're taking. I make videos on a weekly basis on college life, premed and all the things I enjoy.
