I love recording classes.  It makes it so much easyer to pay attention and 
partisapate.  That way you can listen and take notes later which is  a lot 
easyer than listening and taking notes while the professor is talking . 
I've always missed some important key notes by taking notes the first time. 
I personally waited to take all notes so I could consintrate and answer 
questions that were up for discussion as a class.
Just my thoughts I'm sure others have other things to say or add to this or 
different opinions.
