Kokuyo Campus Planner – a short review

I was attracted to buy the Kokuyo Campus Planner Weekly Layout because I wanted to emulate those K-studygrams where they record how much time they put in into their lessons and assignments. It was thrilling to use at first but later I discovered that it doesn’t fit my study pattern.

I am a part time student. I work from 8 – 5 from Monday to Friday. Although I try to study within the designated hours at night and during weekends, I do find that a bulk of my independent study periods are done during opportunistic minutes and hours of the day. This means in between patients on a less busy day, lunch hours, before clinic starts, in the car (rarely) etc. Hence, it does look a little blank, perhaps too sporadic if I highlight the mins/hours in the tracker slots.

I ended up using the Kokuyo Weekly Campus Planner for only 7 weeks. I am thinking of repurposing it to plan my children’s homeschooling syllabus. Have yet to find one.

Never the less, the paper quality and layout is good – just that it doesn’t fit into my study lifestyle (gitteww). Perhaps full time students can benefit more from it including students who don’t have other study planners at hand. On second thought, maybe it is because I was already fully utilizing my hobonichi megaweeks resulting in this Kokuyo planner being redundant.
