I prefer using a pen, but I had one leak all over me today. So right now I'm leading towards pencil. Plus pencil is much better for mathematical problems.

Pencil for me. Most pencils have an eraser on it, so with a pencil you can erase mistakes, with a pen, you have to use whiteout.

Some pens have erasers too. The erasers seem to work farily well, but the pens always seem to fail.

I'm all for the pen. Pencil smudges over time unless you get a really good pencil and really good paper

A Cross pen (both fountain and ballpoint) is just a pleasure to write with.

So the pen gets my vote, and I dont mind needing to use a little Tipp-Ex now and then.

Pen. It's more permanent that way. And it doesn't smudge when you try to use a highlighter. I do crosswords in pen. I take notes in pen. Checks should be written in pen. Applications of whatever sort generally prefer they be done in pen.

I only use pencil for class-related stuff such as homework and exams (especially if it's a multiple-guess exam, at which point pencils are a necessity for the Scantrons).

I'm definently a pencil guy, but I almost always have a pen on me as well (one of those pen/pencil/stylus combo things).

I always use pen. Even my high school math teacher was never able to break me of the habit of using pen on my math homework. Crosswords should be in pen, too :thumbsup:

Pen.
If it must be pencil (e.g. math--I'm the worst person ever at keeping track of whiteout and don't want to have to recopy a whole page because I misplaced a negative sign or a decimal), it must be a 0.5-lead mechanical pencil. Doesn't get that dull thing going on like wooden pencils do.

Ideally, keyboard, because I've done so much of my writing on a computer in the last few years that my handwriting's gone to crap.

I'm studying languages, so the pencil is my best friend. When you dont know what your writing the ability to fix what you're working on is awsome.
