Get Set for the New Academic Year
Whether you are getting ready for the new school year or starting university, it is that time of year to stock up on stationery and notebook supplies.
Choosing the right notepad for your studies is very important, particularly if you are constantly moving from one class to another. You need to be confident that your notes can withstand the rigours of everyday student life.
Top Tips to Choosing the Right Note Pad
With a wide range of notebooks to choose from, here are some tip tips to follow to help you decide on the best notebook for you.
Choose a Suitable Size – For note taking in lectures, which size do you feel more comfortable with? An A5 size pad is more portable and easier to carry whilst an A4 pad may be preferable if you are planning to transfer the finished notes into a ring binder or lever arch file later.
Invest in High Quality Paper – Students are frequently advised to colour code notes in order to retain information and enhance their understanding of a subject. Choosing a notepad that can withstand the use of various coloured pens and highlighters is imperative to ensure your notes remain legible and neat. Look for a notepad with paper at a weight of at least 80gsm to ensure minimal ink bleed through.
Look for Perforated and Hole Punched Papers – A notepad with perforated pages ensures that should you wish to remove some pages you can do so, confident in the knowledge that they will be removed neatly and cleanly without ripping the paper and spoiling your notes.
