Default note cards

I made these cards in word to fit on 3x5's but then I can't print directly on 3x5's so I print them on card stock and cut to 3x5 w/ mail room equipment. I guess you can buy some trees in the amazon to offset the waste if it helps you feel better.

The cards I actually use are heavily written on - (especially where I find errors! buyer beware.) Anyhow, I get my cards done before the seminar, then I make notes on them at the seminar indicating which are absolutely necessary to memorize. Then I study straight from my cards for the last month or so and do sample exams. I passed all the upper level exams 1st time this way.

Ah, the last one. Corrections to any answers can be found in the Mock Exam 8 thread in the forum. It was a tough sitting and a tough exam.

Hope this helps.

I put together a Robbin spreadsheet that I found immensely helpful for my own exam prep. Instead of having a bunch of exhibits all spread out to describe how each method works I tried to translate each of the methods into their own tab on a spreadsheet to make the logic easier to follow.

Hope you find this useful -- good luck!
