Classroom Aides

Some teachers allow students to bring a study sheet into the exam room. Here’s how to assemble one:

  • Prepare the sheet days in advance, as you’re studying the material, not the night before.
  • Write down general ideas as well as names, dates, and formulas— the specifics we often overlook.
  • Type up the study sheet in Microsoft Word or Excel, using an extra-small font to get as much information on the page as you can.
  • Consider adding color, icons, or graphics to make the most important information stand out.
