Dear forumers, in Russia pupils usually have two copybooks: one in which they can cross what is incorrect and pretty much scribble whatever they want and one in which they have to write legibly and clearly and which is handed in to the teacher as homework. What do you call them in your countries? Can we say a fair/rough copybook? Thank you in advance.

    Thanks for your input, gentlemen. Here is what I found online.

    Jean Crystall (1959-64) has been brave enough to lend me her fourth and fifth form cookery neat-books for us to see. For those of other eras, 'neat-books' were the exercise books in which we wrote out our lessons, homework, etc. 'Rough-books' were the thicker exercise books in which we took notes. Fountain pens had to be used in neat-books; Biros were allowed in rough-books.
