I'm a huge stationary nerd, so as soon as I saw these highlighters on JetPens, I
had to have them. The hook was their nifty window so you don't over-highlight.
I'm a chronic over-highlighter-- As in, I'll go well into the next sentence if I
don't think about it and stop myself-- so these seemed *amazing*. Honestly,
though, the windows aren't the best feature.
The Propus Highlighters are double-sided. That means that one side is a regular
(windowed) highlighter and the other side is a thin marker tip that uses the
same highlighter ink. "What would I need that for," you ask? Don't worry: I
thought the same thing. When I started using the Propus, though, I realized it
was changing the way I read textbooks. Now, I make a thick highlight over the
key point, word, or phrase with the regular highlighter side. When I get to
important sub-details, I use the thin point to underline, box in, draw arrows,
star, and even write notes. With this new highlighting technique, I feel much
more productive and understand what I'm reading better. These highlighters are
a must for students!
