In class the other day, I noticed the differences in notes in my area. My mind map is on the left, a classmate's on the right, and below is another classmate's approach. That's a tablet pc, by the way. I don't know if I write down as much info when I mindmap, but I enjoy it better, enjoy looking at my notes later, and can more quickly get back into what was going on in the class. I like it.
