- How do you know if someone else's notes reflect what a professor really said or demonstrated?
- Isn't it easier to go to class and take your own notes? Or bring a digital recorder to get everything a professor says (with their permission, of course)?

- Are notes so personalized that someone else cannot benefit from reading another student's writing? Do most students use so many abbreviations and symbols that the notes are useless to another student?
- Isn't it more efficient to ask the professor directly for clarification of a topic if you don't understand?
