Can't believe no one mentioned the zebra m-301 (amazon link).

Solid feel, has some weight so it sits in your hand nicely, $16 (w/ shipping) for 12 pencils and durable (I have one going on 1.5 yrs like a champ). Enough quality to be a daily user but cheap enough you don't fret if you loose one.

Zebra M-301 (0.5mm) is the pencil. You will never use another pencil in your life. Here's a twelve-pack which will last you a lifetime.

I bought a pack of Zebra M-301 mechanical pencils 15 years ago and they're still going strong. Lasted me all through high school and college.

I use the Zebra M-301 (0.5 lead). It's durable, though somewhat smaller than most mechanical pencils I have used.

> I just use 3 subjects notebook from student center convenience store

Now I'm interested :D

I've heared the 3 subject ones are 150 pages, does that mean 150 pages per subject or 150 pages total? If it were the latter I wouldn't buy, but if its the former then I'm interested.

> Chemistry doesn't really require notes imo, so I wouldn't bother getting a notebook for that.

Could you elaborate? I got all of Tav's notes from my friend since I'll be taking it off season. I'm not sure who my instructor will be, but I've always had a policy of taking down notes in some fashion.


> You can easily prevent this by using a pen that doesn't bleed as much. Using a pen also makes sure your notes stay semi-permanent.


My problem with pens is I don't feel like I'm able to write as well with them as I am with a pencil, I use this pencil for reference I'm extremely pleased with the quality and performance of it <3 Are there any pens that can match it? I generally feel my notes become sloppier with a pen, so that's why I'm hesitant to use a pen for notes, I've done it before, its not very comprehensible.


> It's much easier to organize your stuff in one notebook.

I would like to agree but I'm saving up a lot of them for the MCAT, and I don't want to carry around old baggage from classes which won't be on the MCAT.



Thanks for taking the time for responding! Have a happy new year!

I've always used Zebra M-301s. They are stainless steel, 0.5 mm, and feel very nice in your hand. They have a certain feeling of precision when being held.

However, they had a tendency of poking my leg when they are in pocket. So I've recently switched to Alvin Draf-tecs (I recommend you get at your local art store) which have retractable tips. I like them, but I'm not sure if I like them better than the Zebras.

The standard lead diameter is becoming increasingly thick because it's more difficult for young students to break and therefore more popular. As I understand it the portion of the market that this group represents is big enough to sway the entire market. You should consider ordering these online. The M-301 is the greatest .5mm ever mass produced.
