This binder is perfect for a student, especially in high school or college. It's super durable and will hold the millions of handouts and notes that every student needs without tearing at the prongs (my ultimate pet peeve). It's also durable enough to withstand a student's backpack (yes, even a messy one!). I usually have to replace my binders each semester, but not with this binder!! I will definitely buy this again for next year and suggest it to my friends! GREAT BUY!
