    Personally, I don't. Completing homework takes long enough, without having to type it up as well!

    Interesting idea, though I agree with cristo. I dont know if it would be worth the effort but I do know some people recopy their notes again.

    When I do take notes (in my analysis class), I do so on my laptop with a program called TeXmacs, which allows one to type stuff in TeX quite easily.
    Furthermore, I type up my assignments for classes which allow me to do so.

    I always Latex things, as my handwriting is completely incomprehensible, even to myself.

    Yeah, I think LaTexing your work forces you to learn the material really well.
