I'm interested in knowing how you guys that are more advanced in university studies, listen to lectures. The first month or so i was taking notes like a madman, but i found it really hard to grasp what was going on while doing it since my mind was kinda preoccupied with just managing to write everything down (also different on each professor on how much/fast they'd write). Lately, the past two weeks, i've just tried to have read what it's about when coming to the lecture and trying to understand it, then just sitting there and trying to grasp it better when the teacher says it, without taking any notes.
Which ones would you recommend? It kinda seems like most of the stuff he's doing is already in the book, so writing it down is kinda redundant, but his explenations are often more clear then the ones in the book etc.
