    What is better for you?
    Writing revision notes on a plain piece of paper, or in a book?

    I prefer writing on individual pieces of paper because I can organise my notes in whatever order I want. If I write notes in a book I'm more likely to just read them in that order. By using paper, ideally smaller pages I can reorder as I want. Think flashcards but a bit bigger.

    The other thing is I personally can't stand writing in notebooks unless they're a very specific type. If they're not ring bound or something like top flipped then it's difficult to write in them since more often than not the pages are an uneven height or the spine gets in the way. Not to mention if you make mistakes or want to change things it's more difficult to pull a page out of a notebook.
