I bought these notebooks on a total whim and I love them! They are thin enough to throw in a bag and take along and the paper is very nice compared to most notebook paper available to in the States. I am no longer in school, but I can see how these would be ideal. The dotted lines allow for you to line up text easily, making whatever you write neat and organized. The lines are closer to our version of college ruled paper. (Thumbs up! I hate wide ruled paper.) Some people might not realize that they are not the fattest of notebooks, but I like the size and the value (5 for $14 is an excellent deal) for the quality of paper and binding.

I love the B5 form factor of these notebooks and the colors are great to keep your classes/subjects organized, too. I'd prefer a gridded notebook but the dots are a great alternative and come in handy when making diagrams that need specific proportions. I'm in graduate school, so some of my classes are more conceptual, and I think one notebook will suffice for the quarter (10 weeks), but I'm reordering for my more notetaking-heavy courses like my math and biotechnology course, for which 2 notebooks for the quarter should suffice. I personally prefer a notebook over loose-leaf paper because I want everything in one, pre-bound place, so if you're like me, I recommend these notebooks. Otherwise, go for the loose-leaf version.

I use a Pilot Hi-Tec C Cavalier 0.3mm pen and Pentel Slicci 0.25mm pens and have loved it. No scratching problems, and the paper is wonderfully smooth so these tiny pens just flow.

This paper has a very smooth feel that is great for taking notes and general writing. It feels thin but holds up well to repeated erasing and does not show through too much on the back. I have been using it for pencil and gel pen notes and both slide nicely across the paper.

The papers are very well secured in the binding and even with much folding open of the book they don't seem to budge at all. I am not sure what they actual did with the binding, it appears to be glued in folded sheets, but it is hard to see. Regardless, it is very secure. I will definitely be buying these again.

Bought this last year and I love the pre-dotted lines. It helped me draw cleaner lines for graphs. Really useful for math, chemistry, and physics classes. The pages were thick enough so no bleeding through!

Excellent paper, works well with ball point or Pilot Hi-Tec gel pens through 0.5mm--haven't tried it with bigger sizes. With these pens I didn't get any bleed through. And the glue binding is better than you might think; I haven't had any of the pages come loose. Very smooth to write on too.

Bought these notebooks because I'm a science student and thought that it would be great for drawing diagrams (ie. Lewis diagrams / molecular structures, etc.) and they are great for drawing perfectly proportional diagrams! This is fantastic as I am quite OCD and need my notes to be super neat and organized in order to study well.

However, I have noticed that as the pages flip, the glued edge makes it difficult to write on the sides of the paper. This sort of annoys me... But the what annoys me the most is the amount of dry time this paper needs. To compensate for the smooth paper that is great for fine tip pens and the minimal show through, the paper in this notebook requires a lot of dry time. Which, due to my OCD-ness and hate for anything smudging on my notes, annoys me a lot. I find that using oil blotting sheets to take up the excess ink to help with this problem (this also works for the Hobonichi paper btw, for those who are wondering).

Note: I am using the uniball signo dx (black, blue black) and the pilot juice (coral pink. gray) with my kokuyo notebook.

These notebooks are absolutely adorable! I wish I had purchased these at the start of semester; they are so lightweight and the colors are very vibrant and cheerful. Overall I am very pleased with the set and plan to buy more in the future as needed. :)

I'm enjoying using these notebooks. Gave one away already, but it's nice that you can buy a 5 pack because they are pretty small (sheet wise). They're great for just having on the desk to jot down notes and 'to-do's'. I imagine they would work well for university too instead of hauling bulky notebooks to class. The only downside is that you can't rip pages out--but maybe that's not a downside for you. Just an observation. Will most likely reorder when mine run out! Also the little dot "lines" are great!
