    It’s worth noting the 2018 iPad is compatible with the Apple Pencil, you don’t have to spend the extra for the iPad Pro, unless you want the bigger screen

    The Paperlike screen protectors are expensive but make it seem like you're writing on paper since they are textured. I believe matte screen protectors work similarly.
    Also, the Notability app is amazing for students! I got my iPad Pro 12.9" + Apple Pencil the last year of my bio undergrad and it was definitely an improvement. Importing PowerPoint lectures and then annotating them while recording the lecture. It has an awesome feature where you hit play and your annotations fade out until you reach the point in the lecture where you wrote them. Better yet, you can click the faded out notes and it jumps to that point in the audio recording. It's also one of the few apps that has vertical scrolling.
    I would also like to warn students that Kindle on the iPad app does not support split screen. You can use the browser version though.
    For PDF textbooks, I would recommend Sidebooks because you can view two pages at once if horizontal. 🙂

    Hey Thomas, I want to ask you something for my studies. Can you please provide me your email or something? I promise I won't spam or something, just legit talk. Please?

    Microsoft Surface Pro 3 + pencil – I gave up on the MS pencil. It took 2 weeks to find the AAAA batteries in the beginning (almost 2 years ago now) and I could never get used to pushing a side button to use it. (My MSPro3 is a work computer and I hope it will die (daily) so that I'll get the latest Dell.) The Apple pencil acts and feels like a pencil on glass (i got used to it), but it feels natural. I am a terrible speller and sloppy note taker. The fact I can erase and tidy while reviewing means it beats the paper experience. However, nothing seems to beat the "flick through the pages" to find those odd notes – so I am continually torn between paper and the ipad..

    The Surface Pro offers a much more natural writing experience in my opinion. I'm in engineering school and the surface allows me to save time and paper. We use a lot of PowerPoint slides, so I can download them and print them into MS OneNote for adding additions to. For assignments, I do them on the surface. If they're submitted online, it's easy. I save as a PDF or image file. If it's submitted by hand, I save as a PDF and print. I have classmates with iPads, they're Apple fans, but the surface has more functionality and mine atleast, seems to cause less issues. So in summary, I prefer it to paper for most usage, but I do occasionally revert to paper when I feel like it. Such as now, when preparing for exams. If I want to keep those paper notes I simply take a document image that's converted to the paper size and formats the image to be clear, and then save it automatically in OneNote. The cost.. for me, is more justifiable than a iPad using the surface. The surface functions as a full laptop. It cost me about 1.5k and I've used it as my notetaking, and full functioning small portable laptop for nearly 2 years without issue. Everything syncs to my OneDrive and when I want to work in a bigger device I use my desktop.

    i really recommend the ipad! i used the pro with the pencil for a year in college and it is so convenient. it is just great to have all your notes/textbooks in one place. i have to commute so i like having to carry less and being able to pull up any note from any class to review it while i'm on the subway. i would recommend notability because i like to record my difficult lectures and playback the parts where i was maybe stuck, confused or just need more clarity on.

    Hi Thomas, I don't know if you've done a video regarding this topic, but if you haven't can you consider it. I've noticed you have talked a lot about college and formal study like taking classes. But, my goal is to educate myself using textbooks and possibly videos. Do you have any advice on planning for self education? Much appreciated thank you

    I use Samsung Galaxy Tab S3. It's decent but surface beats it as long you have full version of microsoft office. Onenote is a great feature however there is difference between app and full version. Tabs S3 can still perform exactly on the video except smaller screen.

    Nice Video! Although you could've have portrayed a few more advantages of the paper notebook. Maybe it is obvious but I do think that writing on paper has a huge impact on the learning experience.

    My 2 in 1 Asus laptop which has Windows ink combined with the bamboo stylus does all that and more for me. I use Onenote with my microsoft account. I can take my notes during lectures, it saves automatically. I can use split screen, many pencil and color options. I can add pictures, text, screenshots and links very easily. My favorite aspect of onenote is that I can use it on my smartphone the same way. So i can write my notes on my pc, then add pictures i took with my phone, and it synchronizes super quickly. Really think you should look into this if you are not an Apple person. 🙂

    Goodnotes is the best app for taking notes on iPad. In combination with the mac App, that synchronizes notes almost instantaneously it‘s pure perfection.

    For me, a person who commutes a lot, carrying a 2018 iPad with OneNote is definitely better than lugging around a bunch of notebooks. Plus, it’s not as costly as the pro, supports the Pencil, and split screen! Just love the fact that OneNote is very compatible with the Pencil.

    Being about 1000$ would i be better off just buying a decent laptop for note taking and using Microsoft office? Im starting university soon and I'm worried about note taking because I write pretty slow but know for a fact I'd retain more from hand writing. Opinions? Advice?

    Your iPad setup sounds very similar to what I've been doing since the Surface 2 came out except I'm based around OneNote. I just wish they would bring in the OCR functionality from the OneNote version that comes with the Surface into the OneNote version that comes with Office365. But I also always carrry around a pen and small field notebook

    This is just a noteshelf2 promoted video. iPad Pencil and OneNote is the best combination yet. You should have try the combination before.

    I have a Lenovo Flex 5 and it's so good! As an artist, I have to say-Its exquisite! Pressure sensitivity is good and the coordination is as good as a Wacom. I've been debating on whether to take notes on paper or on my computer since I start University next month. Thank you for the video! : )

    I liked OneNote, but the pages keep shifting sideways. Nevertheless, it has the best features for a free app for students. Paid apps are good, but I avoid them for legitimate reasons. Would love to know your view on free apps for notetaking and integrations.

    Getting a screen protector for writing on the iPad can make the writing experience seem a bit more natural if that's an obstacle!

    I've been working on my Surface Pro for almost a year now and I love it – especially for the research and writing of my MA thesis. It has considerably decreased the amount of paper I carry around. The Surface Pen is easy to use and writing with it feels very effortless (no, it is definitely not the same as writing on real paper; but that's mostly due to the lack of friction on the screen vs paper. I've put a screen protector on my Surface which provides a bit more friction and writing with the pen feels more natural now). The best note taking app for Windows users is definitely OneNote. You can take notes by hand or with the pen, it makes your handwriting searchable, you can insert pdfs and mark them up, take fotos of your handwritten notes in class (or whiteboards, hand outs etc) with OfficeLens and insert them – they, too, will be searchable and you can annotate them. The Surface Pro + Pen is a good choice for me because it is light and small, just like a tablet, but functions like a laptop. I don't like to carry around a bulky laptop and with this I don't need a big laptop or an oldfashioned notebook.

    I found the Surface to be far superior than the Ipad Pro in my experience, especially as someone who writes really fast and also uses a form of cursive handwriting. I found the ipen couldn't keep up. Also the surface tablets and laptops come with OneNote installed (need I say anymore?), which makes editing and organising notes a breeze!

    can you please do a video on the rocket book? it sounds great. I already use erasable pens, but a whole book like that might be good for Bullet Journalling.

    See, I really wanted an iPad to digitize my notes so that I could always have them available. Also, I would download my ebooks for my college classes and annotate on the margins. But I'm really worried that I won't be able to fully retain my notes for a test, since I would be staring at a screen. I'm an engineering major and I want to know if the iPad writing experience will come in the way of me retaining my lectures. Does anyone have a clue???? Really important!

    I have a surface 3 and I love it. I mainly like how it syncs with my windows pc. As far as writing on it I’ve done annotating on PDFs and it’s been fine but for straight up note taking I’ve always used paper

    For the last year, since the 10.5" iPad Pro has been released, I have taken notes on that device. I agree with you that the iPad pro 12" does not compare to real paper due to the glass screen and delayed writing. The 10.5" has a 120Hz display making the writing way more responsive, and with a cheap screen protector you can get the device writing like actual paper but with way more versatility. I suggest you check it out

    I dont think many students can afford to spend $600+ on an iPad pro. Does anyone know of any good apps for android?
