Writing vs Typing Notes

Instead of studying I'm researching whether it's more effective to write notes by hand vs typing them out. Based on my brief scanning, writing results in a higher rate of retention. I guess I'm gonna write out the remaining of my notes. Feels funny and nostalgic to bust out my old Sanford Ph.D mechanical pencil I used in college.

As for note taking, currently I use a combination of the Cornell Method and Outlining [note taking systems]. I've been meaning to try and integrate mapping into my notes, but then I normally revert to some type of software like iThoughts or FreeMind. Uggh.. sometimes analog gets the job done.

Okay, enough slacking off and back to studying.
