I never tear the pages off in advance. It is very satisfying to take a completed page off of the pad during the exam and know you are done. Or sometimes I need to set a page aside because there are points I haven't tried to answer yet and I'll come back to it after I've gotten further along or as I think of something. Either way, having a pile of blank papers in front of me hasn't ever seemed desirable.

This.

I've never been able to progress linearly through the exam in any session. I'll normally create several piles of papers by the end of each session, corresponding to the work I've done on each problem. Rarely, if ever, did I finish an entire problem to my satisfaction after the first run-through, so I'd leave a part blank that I couldn't think of right away, and come back after the first run-through to spend a little more time thinking about it and filling in the blanks.
