I'm starting a masters degree in a few months, and I'm looking for recommendations for the best Mac software to use in order to take notes and organise information.

The course is in politics, in London. In contrast to my undergraduate degree, where my notes where a mass of badly organised jottings, print outs, photocopies, etc, I'm looking for (ideally) a single program on the Mac that will help me organise all the information that I will get into a format that will help me write essays and prepare for exams. I'm likely to take a lot of notes from books and lectures, as well as pdfs, websites etc.
Progams like Devonthink, Yojimbo, Tinderbox and Scrivener, all look like they might be useful, but I don't know anyone who uses any of them.
So hive-mind, what program or programs would be most helpful? Thanks.
