Circa Weekly Vertical Format Agenda LTR
Circa agenda user for many years. I have tried other systems & formats only to return to this layout for function. However, I do prefer the earlier design with the perforated corners.

A Useful and Flexible Agenda Format
The Circa Weekly Vertical Format is a useful and flexible Agenda that allows the user to organize tasks and ideas in both linear and non-linear ways. Prior to the weekly scheduling pages at the beginning of each new month, there is a full lined page of Notes and Month To-Do. These are useful pages that allow me to write quick notes and reminders for the next month while I am still in the current month. These notes and reminders are then useful when I schedule appointments and meetings for the upcoming month. Additionally, I like how each week-day has a notes section following the scheduling area. This notes area is a good place to put tasks for the current day that may not necessarily fit into a timed schedule and also to write quick reminders and follow-ups corresponding to tasks that were completed.
As the previous reviewer stated, the disks on this Agenda are full. I have added one 3x5 card dock-it fully equipped with cards to the front of the Agenda. The dock-it fits well, but there is no additional room for me to add anything else that may add considerable bulk (such as the monthly tabs). On that note, though, I do not desire to add any bulky items. I still use the Circa add-ins such as the Balanced Life cards and the Circa Task pages. These items all fit well without having to up-size the Circa disks.
I would like to see the addition of the scored page corners on the bottoms of the pages. The scored corners make using the Agenda more efficient because you are able to quickly find the current page. Additionally, I would like to see the grams per square meter of the paper used for this agenda increased. I use a Waterman rollerball and Waterman ink with my Agenda, and I do not like how you can see the writing on the reverse sides of the pages. I fully realize that these modifications may increase the cost of this Agenda. The cost increase may be worth it, though.

Wish it were 2010 again
I've loved buying this agenda since 2007 but since 2011 that Levenger keeps changing it and I dislike it more and more. This year again, they decided to remove the monthly tabs so you need to purchase them separately and you also need to purchase larger discs since the 1/2" that come with it collapse as soon as you add the tabs. They also removed the dotted tear corners that helped you track past pages from new pages. I understand it's about cost efficiency, but Levenger is already an expensive brand, so they should understand their end customer who purchases for functionality more than price - otherwise we'd purchase At-a-Glance products
