Review: Maruman Smart Review


I like the form factor of the Maruman mini ring notebook system, so when I saw these study aids, I decided to take a closer look. 

The binder itself is also a part of the Smart review system. 
It has been designed so the tabs are easy to see through the cover. 

The colour is not usually what I would purchase but the brighter the better when it comes to notes. 
I also like that the spine is the push open mechanism in plastic that is easy on the fingers, metal is fancy and all that but can pinch and that hurts. 

So yes, the binder comes with a set of colour coded dividers with laminated tabs. 
To write on the tabs, I recommend a permanent marker or some labels. 

The looseleaf refill set comes with 90 pages of 6mm spaced lined paper in 3 colours. 
Great for separating your notes visually. 

The vocabulary note set works with or without a card that allows for quick referencing and studying. 
The card is sold separately but even without it, the sheets are great listing and marking off things that you will or have already studied. 

How does the card work? 
It's red so whatever you write in red will disappear with the card over it. 

like so!

Very useful, first off, it's less effort than flipping pages or folding sheets and I think the red keeps you awake, I definitely need help in that department. 

A comparison of the mini binder next to the slim A5 binder. 

All in all, a very tidy study set from Maruman. 

I'm going to take my time filling these up but what do you think? Is this something you'd like to try?
