Open book Civ Pro exam

Postby belkin » Mon Apr 11, 2011 5:04 pm

I'm looking for suggestions on what to bring to my exam...I've only had 1 other open book test so far, and I tried to just put everything I thought i needed on 1 page so that I wouldn't waste time flipping... but in terms of the civ pro rule book... do I just tab the hell of it??? I was sort of thinking of typing/printing all of the rules we've gone over in class because I feel like the book is just bound to slow me down. What did you do?

Thank you.

I made about a 30 page outline in Word, but each page had it's own heading and only covered one topic that corresponded to a topic we covered in class.

So the first page was all about "Stating the claim", then I think it was "Sanctions", etc.

It was 30 pages, but a lot of pages weren't full, and it was easy to flip through because I had the headings up at the top. So I knew when I got to something on discovery, just flip to that section.

I had the pertinent rules and various stuff. Worked pretty well.
