Review: Ampad Versa Notebook

The Ampad Versa [25-635] at first glance seems to be the perfect little secretary to carry around with you!
As a busy professional, I am always looking for great notebooks for note taking, appointments, and reminders. I could hardly wait for this one to arrive.
Unfortunately, I felt that the materials were flimsy and weak.
The "re-positional" pages and book markrs sound good when you talk about them. Unfortunately, the tabs that hold them in place are weak and easily bent and then don't allow them to be re-inserted for a new location.
The file pockets seemed a big plus! But in fact are so thin that nothing more than one or two layers of paper can be inserted without pulling them apart.
Don't get me wrong, I am a huge fan of Ampad products and have used them for years with success! However, this new notebook just doesn't make the grade.
It does come complete with flexible page bookmarks, as well as sticky pads and arrows for pointing out highlights and important notes.
The 6" x 9" size is perfect for purse or briefcase.
I just can't endorse the flimsy construction or lack of proper pocket space.
I give this product...
one [1] star and....
...a thumbs down.
[So Sad!]
