My personal experience is that taking notes during class was very
beificial. Of course taking notes is not the same thing as simply
writing down everything the prof/teacher says. Going over them later
with a highlighter or distilling the important parts was also useful.
If I had the time I would sometimes type up the distilled notes, but
with a full class load that was rarely the case.
Just my own experiences and not scientific at all.
