    It's nice to hear your perspective of using an iPad as a student in your school, Amy. Nice job!

    Totally agree. We're heading to that age anyway.

    As a teacher, I require that my students download course handouts from their online course shell and bring them to class, so those with an iPad have an advantage over students who have to print them.

    This thread is really helpful since I'm starting uni in less than a month. I have been looking into a good PDF reader that will help with all the readings I will do for classes.
    Would love for anyone to comment on their experience with Good Reader and/or iAnnotate. I can't choose between the two, they both seem very good ones to use

    I'm a bit of an oldie when it comes to note taking in class. Still love my pen and paper/notebook XD

    I usually have essays rather than exams, so while a note-taking app would help heaps, I think I will be fine with the memo app that comes in the iPad for to-do lists and other notes that don't need to take up a lot of space.

    if you just need a basic PDF editor I would recommend neu.annotate or a similar app for ~$2 or free. I used GoodReader heavily in grad school up until about six months ago. GR has great syncing features that were the selling point for me.

    iAnnotate PDF is my primary app. That's where I store scanned and searchable copies of my course texts based on my specifications. It has a wide array of options.

    Just a basic one will do, to make notes or asterisks while I read articles and such. GR seems good with all the various notes and types of notes you can make, neu.annotate seems great as well though. Thanks for the suggestion, guess I'll have to sit on this for a while, haha.

    I'm still using and carrying laptop to school but sometimes I'm using iPad. If it comes to difficult task or any thesis/project related activities I prefer using laptop because it is easier to use. I'm using my ipad for less hassle task. I'm still not that good in using my iPad I still don't know some of the good features and apps of the iPad. I do love Note Pro app.

    i understand why you use the ipad for school. I use my ipad mini you reports and to access docs. But sense I go to school for computers i use my macbook pro for all demanding work such as: VMware for multiple servers and OS's. but my ipad is the best for getting work done
