Personally, I prefer binders. That's how I took notes in high school, and I stuck with it for university. Last year, I took my notes on lined paper and kept them in a "Rough Notes" binder. Eventually, I'd re-write them: add stuff from the textbook, the PowerPoint slides, and any other sources, and then keep them in a binder for that subject. These would be my "Good Copy" notes that I'd exclusively use to study for tests and exams. I also did practice problems on lined paper, and added them to the subject binders. If I got any handouts, like the project packs, I hole-punched them and put them in a binder. I could also remove and re-arrange my notes if needed, something I wouldn't have been able to do if I used notebooks.

But that's just my method. I know that many of my classmates took notes in notebooks, or a mix of notebooks and binders. Or on their laptops. The possibilities are endless. =P

Ultimately, go with what works for you!

i htink most ppl did notebooks. I went binder in the beginning, and hten switched to notebook near hte end of the year as we don't get nearly as many handouts as we did in highschool (everything is online and computerized).
