The item is great for school and work. I already finished the notepad. It comes with a notepad and pen. It can hold up to 5 full size pens, and the notepad. I currently am hold 3 full size pens, 25 index cards, and a notepad. I also, and it can be switched out to hold a basic calculator. Be hind the pen slots is room for more index cards or business cards. I absolutely love it. It has many pros, especially if you want to carry light for school. It also fits in back pocket or side pockets. Great product all around.
