So I'm going back to college. I start on August 11th. Here's my deal though. I've been in and out of college since I graduated in 2009 because of Epilepsy problems. I've gone to college three other times already. Also for three different things. Should have stayed with the same track I know but I'm indecisive and I get bored easily. First time I was at the community college, I was there for my AA but I had just found out that I had Epilepsy. My GPA started dropping near the end of a year and a… read more
Okay people listen up I am 67 and have had seizures of all types since I was born. I am a Psychologist, the way I got my degrees was very hard. 1. Take notes 2. Inform your professors of your life 3.

Yes it is a lot of work but it paid off for me and if you are willing it could pay off for you.
I am currently back in school for my second career. I like everyone else was told to record the lectures, but I never really used them when I did. I think if I had the live scribe pen it may have made it a bit easier. What I like is online courses because I can pace myself more, and I can go back and rewatch the videos of the lectures as many times as I want.
I kept notes and also recorded class .
If You are writing something and need to come up with ideas or need to remember something thy doing this: Get a piece of paper and pencil. If You are writing an essay about something Try this: In the middle of the page write down what You are writing about then circle it. Keep doing that about anything more ideas will come out of Your mind. Ex Native Americans----Civil War----------Sioux--------Custer's last Stand--------Chief----------Sitting Bull. Write something on the same page just in an open space. Just keep doing something like that. Circle each thing You write on the page and draw lines to connect one circle to the next. Notice how large the circle is around the word You wrote is-that will tell You how important that thing is. Sorry I cannot show You-I hope that was clear enough for You to understand. That helped me graduate from college.
I can fully recommend the Livescribe pens. My last job as a Technical Writer was enhanced a great deal by using one.
Timestamp audio to written notes, bookmark important note to audio, converts written notes and diagrams to word docs plus a range of other useful features.
