    You dont need your laptop. Paper and a pencil should do it.

    More and more students bring laptops, as it makes note-taking easier. It's great if you connect a microphone too, as you don't miss anything that way. Books generally aren't needed on the first day - that's more for discussions.

    Well you may want to bring yor laptop eventually. I was just saying its the first day of class. You probably arent taking notes and its best to get a feel for the class before you bust out the laptop.

    Yeah, I'm not lugging the laptop until class becomes more note intensive. Right now, Chem class is just, "an atom contains protons, neutrons, and electrons."

    Just a word of advice:
    ALL berkeley classes start easy. But, by the second week, it suddenly becomes about 13498 times harder without you even noticing it till the first exam hits.

    W T F?

    people bring laptops now? how do you fit them on the biscuit sized folding tables?

    Brain, paper, pen are the only things you need.

    Actually, we've only had 1 true Chem lecture, and the homework due Friday has a ton of nomenclature stuff that we covered in AP Chem for weeks. So I'm sensing the tide closing in, which makes me prepared. My Intro Indian language class from the moment I walked in was a bombardment. One lecture and we've already learned the entire alphabet (a bunch of symbols that I somehow learned perfectly) and we had a quiz in which we made actual sentences with these symbols.
