  44. I honestly didn't have any advantages in taking notes in a notebook.Having a notebook was actually my least favorite thing about Social Studies class.It helped me in no way,I didn't have any of the notes because I didn't know what to put in the notebook.And,I was always confused when it came to the notebook,it also just took up room in my bag because it wasn't helpful in any way.
