I think everybody feels like that at some point or another. One section gets better profs, one gets fewer assignments, one has open note exams (my section didn't have a single open-note exam last semester, while most others did), etc. It's just one of those things you don't have much control over. I'd say it's safe to say that it evens out over the course of the year though.
I would be ecstatic at all 4 classes being closed note. I never looked at an outline once during exams last semester and feel like I memorize it well enough so I likely won't again this semester. If all the people that DID use outlines didn't get them I would have been higher on the curve.
