· When you are told that you are allowed to being your exam, the first thing you do is rip out the last page! It is the Reference Sheet. Keep it to the side while you are taking the exam. There is also a page of graph paper in the back, Rip this page out too! It will not be graded, but use it as scrap paper if needed.
