The Bode plots of simple circuits may be plotted on reactance (also known as impedance) paper to quickly indicate the resulting impedance of the circuit versus frequency. This is handy for quickly sketching out the frequency response of simple R-L-C circuits. Reactance graph paper is a log-log representation of resistance, capacitance, inductance, and frequency all on a single graph.
