"I've decided that it's not really fair to make you do a cumulative final without notes. Therefore, you may, on the final, bring as many prepared notes as you want... as long as you can fit them all on two sides of a 3x5 index card."

Ms. Traub gave us a briefing today on the final exam. Notes, hmm? I won't forget the Quadratic Formula, then. But what else to do with the precious little space? I can't write legibly very small...

Wait. I have a photo printer. I have really good eyesight (glasses are just for depth perception). I can print up my notes in Illegible Flyspeck 3, instead of Times New Roman 12.

"Ms. Traub? Can we print up our notes off a computer straight onto the card?"

"As long as they fit."

I'm now faced with an interesting challenge: squashing as many legible notes as possible onto one 3x5 index card...

Have you learned Personal Shorthand yet? Real lifesaver for notetaking /and/ notekeeping.

Try to optimize your space, by only taking the notes which you need most, and not taking similar type notes. IE, let what's on one note remind you of the other notes you would've taken.

Also, you have to watch out for things which are printed. If you smudge them, then at the size I'm presuming you'll be printing them, it's all over.

Good luck to ya.
