I'm sure just writing that whole thing out, in and of itself, was beneficial for the exam
I was told by a teacher friend of mine that the tactic of doing this is to get them to copy the learning material to help get stuck in the students brain, and I felt tricked for like all my years of school that I had to do that lol
We were allowed a 3x5 note card but the professor never specified it had to be handwritten so I printed it in size 8 font and even color coded it. You girlfriend has wonderful handwriting and organizational skills!
I had the same restriction. I got creative with the photocopiers in the library.
*Cries in Engineering*
Yeah we wouldn't even have the time for that if we were even gave the opportunity anyway
Ultimate cosmic power, itty bitty living space
What class it it for? I can’t read it because I already took my contacts out for the night.
Edit: I took biology long time ago
The professor is clever. Making of the card is review for the test.
You know when the professor says you can bring in notes, that test is hard AF.
But what about the back side? I did this for engineering and physics classes and absolutely knew the material better after finishing the page. Love the use of color highlighters. Good work!
They we're allowed one side of an A4 page
Looks like an advanced physics course: optics and levers, I also see MRI (maybe some medical imaging course?). I remember making cheat sheets for tough courses like Fluid Mechanics and Control Systems. Wrote so small that I fit in most of the important concepts and even some solutions - had a hard time reading it myself, of course
Yea lol, too small so you can't read it on the day. Her paper was called, physics of the life sciences
She saw the loophole and took it
I’ve done this before for my exams and it honestly made it worse for me. All that information in a timed exam and I lost a lot of time looking over my page for answers. I’m sure her organizing skills are better than mine but damn I got anxiety just looking at this page lol
Quite the opposite for me. I spent so much effort in creating the note, that I ended up not looking at it that much during the actual exam.
There’s a chance she does pretty well on the exam.
I got a B my first semester of Spanish in high school. We were given a note card for the final, front and back. I literally wrote every single word we ever learned and the translation on that card. The only portion I skipped was the time section, I remember being tight on room and just making the decision to ax it. I left that section completely empty on the final.
My gf would do the same.
I don't blame her! Hope she aced it.
My head hurts just by looking at it
I feel like this is the page you’d want to put through a magical time-travel fax machine; transmit it to the Royal Society in the 1700’s, utterly disrupting the events of the past by skipping over centuries of trial and error.
I can actually hear past 20k
I used to do this .3 mm lead drafting pencil you can fit a semester on one page face
My hand cramped seeing this.
I did this too except I wasn’t allowed to bring one page not to my exams
A whole page? I used to have to do this to an index card.
Optics, I would recognise those shapes anywhere.
Super interesting physics
did she get away with it?
Bloody hell...what’s going to happen if none of the research she’s put on this page never comes up in the exam???
This is still rookie level. For HS physics, we were allowed one note card. Blue and Red 3D glasses were still a thing back then and most people had them lying around (they came with cereal boxes, and snacks back before cell phones and you would entertain yourself with the box of what you were eating). Anyway, we would fill the card with information in red ink then again with light blue ink. Using the glasses, we then filtered out one color and doubled the information we could fit on the card.
Liquid state is supposed to be an easy chapter. But now I know it isnt
Reminds me of the good ol days
Gonna waste half the test time reading her own notes. Hope she does well.
Was she also allowed a magnifying glass?
Fuuuck i wish i was allowed this in my exam, looks like my entire physics course
This is a skill in itself worth developing because it has really world application so I totally get it. In my career I’ve always made cheat sheets for formulas and processes and keep them organized well on the wall behind my desk off to the side. There’s not a lot of sense in spending a significant amount of time intentionally memorizing something that you can just look up in less than 5 seconds. Even when you have something complex memorized, it’s always good to have the source of truth at hand to validate. The mind is too malleable to be given too much trust. Learning how to make a good concise organized system of information is much more valuable and reliable than your memory.
Before I saw the pen, I thought that was a poster! Truely impressive work.
Brings back terrifying memories of college. Glad I'm 20+ years done...although I still get those nightmares where I have a final exam and I've not studied the whole quarter lol.
In my physical chemistry course long ago, our professor was known for adding "Derive all equations used from first principles" to each exam question. This forced us to write out the derivations for every equation on a huge sheet of paper and learn them. We were not allowed to bring in that paper but the act of studying the derivation techniques really cemented our knowledge. It was a genius way to ensure we deeply understood physical chemistry
Everyone has tried this when we were given this rule
I went to university in the late 1960s. Several of my science classes allowed a sheet of notes. Planning and writing the page was an incredibly effective learning technique
Ah, the memories
First year uni paper called "physics for the life sciences"
I’m a no notes type myself, either I got it or I don’t.
Pro tip: just write it out normal size and then scan and print 8 to a page. Way neater
Whoa, I took a similar course and had a similar handwritten page of notes😂 Unfortunately I only had one highlighter—
Bet she still gets a C if she needs this.
Did your wife ever do a long stint in prison?
Is your partner studying to be an engineer or physicist?
We were allowed one handwritten page of notes for my French speaking exam in school too. But my teacher realised that there was no rule on the size of the paper. Cut to 30 kids turning up to the exam with huge A3 size pieces of paper with their French speech written word for word on it
This reminds me of the econometrics midterms I took during my bachelor's. We were only allowed one page and so a lot of us did stuff like this. Good times
I used a 0.35mm pencil an a whole weekend for mine.
Wtf kind of page is this?!?!
Just goes to say how much pointless shit we have to mug up just for the sake of grades. Good job tho.
So i studied all that shit in highschool on Brazil. As far as I can see its basic optics.
Good for you. What are you doing now?
Does a tri-fold poster board count as a page
Meh.. In our Federal Taxation final we were allowed 1 handwritten 4x6 index card. We had people that somehow got the entire United States Federal Tax code onto it.
I think just studying for the final would've been much easier imo.
I used to do this all the time when I was on school and they would let us have one page of notes, they didn’t add the handwritten til one of my classmates came in with nearly the entire text book printed and shrunk onto one page and a magnifying glass Sherlock Holmes prolly would have used lmao
I thought we all do that?
Laminate it and pass it down for posterity! I wish I knew what was written down...
One roll of plotting paper would be better
Yeah I used to do that back in school
I'd need a magnifying glass or bifocals to be able to read all that.
Paper was called, physics of life sciences
Next time use 11x17
