Taping a lecture is a great idea for just about anyone. Some of us don't write as fast as the lecturer speaks. Others have to "understand" before writing. Some professors start one idea and finish up with another. Ask your professor's permission first and record lectures, unless your college has video-recording. Listening (or watching, if you're lucky enough) to the lecture later, after hearing it in class, is helpful for general understanding of ideas, as well as in writing your notes.
