I am a Nursing student therefore I was looking for a diary to fulfill a lot of needs.

If your like me and you just want to know the basics then here goes. This Diary is A5 sized and is very THICK & HEAVY (which I hate) However,it is a pretty decent diary to have. It has each month to view at the beginning of the days so you can quickly View what you need rather than flicking through a load of pages. I found this incredibly handy.

One great thing about this diary is there are weekly tip of the week which can become quite handy, especially if your not very organised!

One deal breaker for me is not having enough space to write on specific days, For example, I'd plan in October for Fire training. So in the month to view I'd put Fire Training and the time but then when I go to the week to view their is around 7 small lines to write what you need. Now if you put further information on these lines, you'll have no space for anything else esp if your writing is big! Although they have provided a box beneath which gives you and extra 3 lines to work with. Its not a massive deal breaker but you decide.

To round this off I'd buy this diary again and I'd recommend it to a friend.

I'd bare in mind if you carry a lot of things in your bag this diary is quite weighty.

I checked out this and the Palgrave in a bookstore before buying this one. Here are the main features:

- The Palgrave is shorter, which would have fitted in my bag better. This one is a bit of a beast. EDIT: I retract my meanness about its size, although it is larger than the palgrave it still fits in the front pocket of my satchel! Five stars!
- This one has a really great timetable on the back, four pages of it in case your timetable changes with each semester.
- (My favourite bit): This one has MONTHLY to-do lists and a MONTHLY PLANNER at the start of each month, which just slots between the ordinary schedule bits (week to view). These are superuseful for me so I can see how many parties I'm going to and when- helpful when prioritising around exams.
- (My second favourite thing): Next to your monthly to-do list is a bit called "At this time in the academic year you will probably be...", which is for each month and had things like "safeguarding your digital files" or "thinking about subject choices for the next academic year", which are just really helpful reminders.
- Student Planner has loads of financial spreadsheet kind of things at the back- really useful for going to uni for the first time. Also, coursework checklists and such.

Overall, both this and the palgrave are excellent planners. This one's a bit more for the intensely organised (or in my case, the very lazy- this is the only way I can get stuff done on time!)
This is definitely the planner for me this term, mainly for the monthly to-do lists that will keep me focussed.

I bought this planner mainly because of the convenient monthly planner included, which is were the Palgrave diary fell short last year. I was constantly having to read through weeks and weeks of essay deadlines back then, all in an lumbering attempt to find that one that I wanted. Regarding its actually day to day usage, this book has a nice hard cover and has taken quite a bit of abuse since I got it last month and is still holding up really well. It is also thinner then the Palgrave one(as it doesn't include washing instructions, alcohol unit advice, a maths timetable, a periodic table and other rather bulky and frankly useless information for an older student...though first year UGs might like this feature) and this one is less noticeable in your bag on a day to day basis. The amount of space for each day's classes/activities is really generous compared to some diaries (my free uni given one for example) and there is a smaller note section underneath for homework reminders and so on; although I would have liked a page each but that would have made the book too large and cumbersome for everyday use. It also has the generic useful tips each week and a handy financial, study, timetable and revision section at the back. I haven't personal used these sections though as I prefer my netbook for that sort of thing.

The only negative things I can think to say about this diary are mainly that the plastic covers don't quite overlap the edges of the pages so the right side of my diary is getting a little dirty and worn. Secondly, the Palgrave diary offered a really useful ruler(for flicking straight to the week you wanted) and A5 pocket that clipped into their diary. I still have mine from last year's one but it's a shame this diary doesn't for those who don't have these items.

I am a mature student returning to study and was looking for an academic diary/planner to help me get myself organised with everything. I was a bit dubious about whether or not this would fit the bill but it's perfect. There is somewhere to pretty much write all kinds of important bits of info and the planning resources are fantastic.

The diary is in A5(ish) week to view format, spiral bound and is quite chunky. It's not a problem but when I first saw it I have to admit it was a little bigger than I expected it to be but that is because it is absolutely jam packed with all kinds of resources to help you get through your studies. At the start of each month there is a calendar for the month spread over 2 pages where you can write important things coming up so you can look at the month ahead and easily see what is coming up. You also get a full page with space to write "Things To Do" for that particular month and a page full of tips/things to look out for at that particular time of year as far as the studies go. All very handy and quite informative. I have no doubt this planner will help me to stay on track and on top of everything. The actual diary pages have space to write what you have on for that particular day, the time it's taking place and where. Beneath that there is also a To Do List with a couple of lines for you to add any tasks for that particular day. It follows this format Monday to Fri and on Sat & Sun there are a couple of lines to enter info as you would find in a normal diary. For me personally, this format is perfect for what I need and they have made great use of the space available and fitting everything in considering it's A5 size and week to view.
