Other Thoughts:I started looking for 2B pencils awhile ago after my son's school puts him on this year' roster to take a standardized test. 2B pencils, of course, are much better than the regular HB variety in filling out the bubble sheets.
Other Thoughts:The only reason I gave it four stars was that it could have been packaged more professionally. Sharpened the pencils as well would have helped. It is a really good back-up set for the average user on the go.
Other Thoughts:I got these for my son after reading that they're excellent for sketching. Since he's an artist, this isn't the first time I've gotten him pencils -- but it IS the first time he's raved about any pencils I've bought him! He has told me repeatedly how great they are; how well they work for fine detail work. This was an inexpensive gift which has made him VERY happy
