Enough yarn?

I know I've read several posters here say that the yarn requirements specified in the book were not enough. Is that generally true or only for certain patterns. I have 750 yards of yarn for a pattern that calls for 700, and I'm wondering if it will be enough.

It at last partially depends on what pattern it is, and if the yarn you're using is a lace weight yarn or something else.

Personally, the two patterns that I have made (the dolphin lace scarf from page 108 and the wide bordered scarf from page 96) have both called for less yarn than was needed.

I haven't finished anything yet, but right now I am trying to make sure I have at least 100 more yards of yarn than what is called for.
