Having to spend years and years and years at college taught me new methods of solving old problems that are faced by all students.

Instead of taking a tape recorder to class, it was suggested when I started at the Univesity of New Orleans that I bring carbon paper and regular loose-leaf paper to class. That way I could ask a classmate to put the carbon paper and loose-leaf paper underneath the page she/he was writing on, thus making a carbon copy of whatever notes he/she took down. It was much better than a tape recorder because I didn't have to waste time transcribing the tapes. Also, if I read the notes (and typed them up) while the lecture was still fresh in my mind, I could figure out the worst handwriting, and add notes of my own. (If I didn't take time to do this, I usually ended up with lower grades!)
