    For maths, don't bother buying grid books; what good purpose does the grid serve? Plain exercise books are cheaper and better to write on.

    I would even avoid grid books because in no hsc maths exam will you be given grid paper, its a small thing but if you get as used to/simulate exam conditions as much as possible it will be less stressful.

    Just get an ordinary A4 exercise book, even the ones without binder holes. You will get to a point where anything extra is just gimmicky, useless or not worth the time trying to decide one or the other. They also tend to be more compact.

    Keep everything simple.
