jmichl 0 Posted August 4, 2009 Share Posted August 4, 2009 I'm in my late 40's and starting grad school in a few weeks. I work fulltime during the day and will take classes at night. My back can't handle lugging around two laptops (work and personal) and jumbo sized textbooks. I just got a great price on used text books at Amazon. (http://bit.ly/AmzTextBooks So great, in fact, that I'm willing to rip apart my first text book so I can just carry a chapter with me at a time. Seeing the recent announcement about searchable PDFs with Evernote Premium, I wondered about scanning these chapters into PDF files and not lugging any paper with me. This would be ideal but I will need to take notes in the files. I haven't used Evernote for PDFs yet so I'm not sure if this would be workable.Any thoughts?Any other best practices for students would be appreciated, as well. I use a Mac but also use VMWare with Office 2007 for a few of the classes. I was considering using OneNote for my school notes but if Evernote can do the trick I'd rather send my bucks to the Elephant! Link to comment
