Study Planner Review

So a little something different today:

I was given the privilege to test a little study planner by Cool Pencil Case out this week and I must say, I am quite impressed. Here's how the planner looks like:

Study Planner!

On the inside, however, is where the magic happens. The planner begins with this title page already exploding in colour:


Then comes a timetable to remind you of the classes you ought not to miss (but still do):


There is a school term plan on the next page, which isn't pictured as well. Next comes some weekend (and secret time) clock scheduling, which I must admit, is pretty darn cool:

Weekend Scheduling

Thereafter comes the weekly scheduling:

Weekly view

There is an undated month-on-two page view before every weekly planning, too, but isn't imaged. The weekly goes over 4 pages, and reminds me of the Erin Condren layout. It's highly decorated and varies in colour and pattern for each month. Unfortunately, the planner only accommodates 6 months worth of planning...

Monthly Appraisals

At the end of the month, there are monthly appraisals allowing to reflect on what you've done well and all the things you need to improve on.

At the end of the planner, there is an entire section dedicated to exam planning. They hold exam timetables, subjects you're taking and scores you'd like to achieve, a 2 week (cramming) plan leading up to the exam and a scoreboard to log your final marks:

Exam Timetable

The end of the planner holds a few note pages for scribbles, etc

Quotes at the start of every month

Overall, this planner would be great if I were in school. It's something a parent would get their kids to teach them to be more organised. With the variety of colours, motivational quotes, planning section, exam timetable etc, I can see it appealing to the young (or the young at heart)! And right now, for purchases of $30 or more at the Cool Pencil Case store, you can use the code SPRINGWITHCPC to get 10% off your order! Hooray! They have some other cool stuff on there as well, so do check them out!

Disclaimer: I was given the planner free of charge to test it out, but this has not swayed my opinions of the item whatsoever. Just thought you should know!
