One does not simply go to all lectures and take good notes. Today’s students prefer smarter solutions – recording lectures or, even better, asking somebody to make a recording. Brilliant results with minimum time and effort – isn’t this what you have been dreaming of? Can lecture recording and sharing of recordings replace professors then?
Lecture Recording Benefits
Actually, the answer to the question “to record or not to record lectures” is definitely “yes”. Anyway, recording won’t do any harm. Scholars recently discovered that listening to downloadable audio lectures can be even more effective than attending traditional sessions in brick-and-mortar halls.
The dilemma however is whether a recording means that you can miss the lecture or you still must be at least physically present in the lecture hall. The correct solution depends on the characteristics of the course and the professor’s attitude to non-attendants. Here are some tips for testing the ground:

There are important steps in being successful if you are to survive the first year and continue on toward earning your degree. At the top of the list is making sure that you go to class. College costs are expensive, and not attending class is a huge waste of money.
It’s especially important to develop a relationship with your professors.

What if all prepositions miraculously vanished from the English language? Oh, that would be a complete disaster! These small parts of speech are not as shy as they might seem.

These preposition sentence examples will help you understand the value of every single preposition.
What is a preposition and a prepositional phrase?
A preposition is a part of speech, which shows the relations between other parts of a sentence. For example, in the sentence “The book was read by David”, the preposition “by” indicates the doer of the action.
A prepositional phrase is a phrase consisting of a preposition and a noun or pronoun. For example, “behind the curtain”, “around the world”, “through the wood” are excellent examples of prepositional phrases.
