This isn`t a big deal. Everyone in my chem class has produced sheets like these. What`s up with the empty space in the lower left and mid-right?

I had a professor that let us have one page, front only, standard notebook paper worth of notes. Lol, that is exactly what everyone`s notes looked like!

@howlingwolf I`ve experienced the same thing- the open book/open note exams I had were insanely difficult. I had a differential equations class where all the exams were open-book, and barely squeaked by with a B. I aced my abstract algebra class that term, though :) We had open-book take home exams that were INSANE. I had to spend between 10 and 15 hours on each of them to get A`s.

One teacher of mine gave open-noted quizzes. Most of us did poorly because the teacher jacked up the difficulty, and most students didn`t get the time to sift through their notes. All in all, the less materials a teacher gives you (thus lower expectations) the better I notice people tend to do (including me).

Yes it does, and bypassing the filter with spaces, misspellings etc is a bannable offense (although to tell the truth, most of the time you`ll just get a warning but don`t tell anyone I told you so). Play nice for a family-friendly site though ok?

I had an old computer with a dot matrix printer (back in the late 80s). I too had to use 2 - 3x5 for test notes. Filled mine front and back in size 4 font. I showed them to my classmates a day before the test. 10 of them paid me $5 for each set of cards. Our class had the highest average grade in years, The teacher thought we cheated. Once he seen the cards up close, He was impressed.

In my AP Chem class a few years ago, our teacher said we could use a 4 by 6 note-card. My buddy took a sheet of poster board 4 feet by 6 feet wide and just straight up copied every single note he had taken. He got to use it, and our teacher laughed about it for days.

What`s so interesting about this? I had one page of notes for physics exams many times and they looked almost exactly like this, except in my handwriting. His writing isn`t unusually small. Not IAB-worthy

You should have seen my applied electromagnetics cheat sheets. Even smaller than that, and 6 pages.

And Sillabub, I think the big empty grids he was referring to are the actual empty space, not electron configs.

The way to do it is to type it up on the computer. Use a super-small font, of course. Type up the front and back of one page using only red font. After you print the page, put the page back in your printer. Type up the front and back a paper with NEW notes, only this time, use BLUE ink. Print. You`ll have one sheet with two sets of notes on both the front and back, each set of notes written in a different color ink. To make it easy to read, get a red transparent glossy sheet, and a blue transparent glossy. When you need to read from the blue notes, cover the note page with the red glossy. When you need to read the red notes, use the blue glossy.

"I did that. School desk sized notes. One big piece. Economics class in high school. I still failed the test. Miserably. *sigh*"

That`s impressive. The failing, not the notes. The notes are impressive too, but damn...

If the person taking the test put that much work into their cheat sheet they will get an A regardless. Good luck n00bs.

"The big empty grids probably help a lot"

No, its just got to do with electron configurations. p blocks, d blocks, etc and how they`re arranged on the periodic table. I`m doing nearly all of it in MY chemistry class.

I remember we were allowed one sheet of paper to have notes on during a test, and then one kid had crammed so much on it that he actually pulled a magnifying class to read them.

I didn`t read all the comments but I bet it was required to be hand written. If it could have been printed from the computer, he could have loaded that thing up even more.

When I had a particularly tough exam during my undergrad I would make note sheets the night before and make sure i went to bed before midnight. Then I would get up about 4 hours before the exam and go to the examroom (or the closest classroom nearby). I would copy my note sheets repeatedly for 3-4 hours until the teacher said it was time to start. I would put my notes away and pull out 3 blank pieces of paper. I didn`t even look at the exam when it was handed out, I just spent the first fifteen minutes re-writing my notes from memory onto the blank paper. Aced many a tough exam that way.

And the second part of the Teacher Trick is that none of the things you wrote down/studied the night before because they are the major things to expect, end up being on the exam, and you are asked questions that you would never in a million years consider important enough to swat up on. Mongrel teachers.

This reminds me of the AP chemistry midterm my class had recently. The teacher said we could bring FOUR single sided pages of notes in. However, he told us that we could not put any kinds of ionization constants or solubility rules on the paper, which were the hardest things to remember!

I ended up not bringing in any sheets at all, and I still did well.

This is SUCH a teacher trick. They tell you you can have a cheat sheet, and then you end up looking up all the important things you think will be on the test. Then, the next day when the test is put in front of you, you realize, "Holy poo! I remember all this stuff from looking it up last night to write my cheat sheet!" It`s just to fool you into studying. Not that they aren`t still helpful if something slips your mind...

>Of course you`re not allowed any notes in your proper exams. That would make them worthless and easy.

We are allowed one sheet of notes in mathematical analysis, for example. Still a hell of an exam. The point is, the exam is not about remembering the integral of (sin x)^2, it`s about calculation.

" "chemistry cheat sheet". Description fail. Of course you`re not allowed any notes in your proper exams. That would make them worthless and easy. You can fit every memory-jogger and thing you can`t remember on the back of a bar mat and get 99.9%."

We`re allowed cheat sheets for our final math exam this semester. :/

looks like he didnt fill in the middle of the periodic table...

my physics teacher let us have a page of notes for our midterm, and then he handed back the same page 2 days before the final so we could use the back side. he was a awesome teacher, and we needed it for all the formulas. we definatly coulda fit more stuff on a piece of paper, but luckily we didnt have to

Also, we were allowed 3 note cards for my Pharmacology final (with an absolutely horrible teacher who wasn`t able to teach even the smartest of us). So I printed out text in a 4 point font that had pretty much everything, then sold them.

Do the submitters even LOOK at the picture before writing the description?


From my experience with submitting, the submitters don`t write them. Or it gets changed. I`ve had that happen with a couple things I`ve posted.
