I hand-write notes because the process of transferring the notes into a Word document really helps me study. Some days I would fore-go the notebook for the computer when I was being lazy, and I could never remember that information as well. I just use one, three-subject notebook. I tried using three notebooks first semester and it was just a pain in the ass.

I liked using [url="http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CBIQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fluminotes.com%2F&ei=U0lbTPSoOMH98Aays-2OAg&usg=AFQjCNFpOYlWHJUbgSsol6OjllhrTfIvtA"]luminotes[/url]. Really though, any personal wiki will do. To outline with luminotes, I split each class up into anywhere from two to four parts, and then kept separate outlines for those parts. Prior to exams, I merged the parts into a word document.
