    Math/science people do pencil

    English/humanities more towards pens, perhaps

    I remember once I had to write an essay saying that that pencils were better, only I wrote it with a pen

    It depends on the person. I understand that math/science people will use pencil because it's easily erasable, but I'm with the "English/humanities" group and I prefer using pencil when taking notes for the same reason. However, when I'm writing for exams in blue books, I use a pen.

    In highschool it was mechanical pencils for everything besides in-class essays for English and History.

    my fav. would probably be gel pens cuz they're smooooooth.

    but, i use pencils because i erase A LOT.
  • Jason2009Jason2009 Posts: 1,280Registered User Senior Member
    gel pens are nice but a bit pricey

    Why do people even ask questions like these?
    It's like asking whether you like beef or pork.
  • jenuwin01jenuwin01 Posts: 878Registered User Member
    lol yeah forreal. it's not like just because majority students use pens, you aren't gonna bring pencils. -_-

    some questions are common sense questions too. ugh, i get irritated but answer it anyway.

    Do you like beef or pork?

    lol

    you're in a bad mood again eminent..
  • EminentFigureEminentFigure Posts: 477Registered User Member
    No, not in a bad mood this time.
    I like beef. But how is this thread providing any insight in the upcoming school year?
    I doubt most people come here for opinion polls; they just want answers to important questions such as when school starts, what to bring, etc, but not questions like these.
  • WhiteclockWhiteclock Posts: 908Registered User Member
    Well, it isn't providing any insight

    But I would think that's it's not really an issue...
