Science is a subject which requires understanding of concepts better. As CBSE board exams are around the corner, so many students are stressed about the revision.

There are several reasons for importance of cheat sheet:
Below are some techniques to create a cheat sheet and make its information easy to read.
Take look at the detailed explanations of all these points:
Use abbreviations and symbols wherever possible to make the notes crisp and quick to read. For example, use “&” sign instead of writing “and”. Also, use abbreviations such as “kg” for “kilogram” and “i.e.” for “that is”.
Bonus Tip: Try to underline main keywords always. If you highlight points in your textbook during classroom reading time, make those points your priority for revision.
One more way to make your cheat sheet more readable by using different colour pens, such as using pink to highlight formulas, light green for keywords and blue for important points. When you mark information with different colours, it differentiates multiple types and now you can easily skim information from the page.
Divide the sheet into some parts and dedicate a particular section to one kind of information only. You can group similar information together. Scan all the topics and mark points which you can club together.
For practical questions put all formulas in one place, make a chart of periodic table and shortcuts in another sheet. This is how students can create a science cheat sheet.
Now that you have learnt how to create a cheat sheet and why it is important. Understand how you can use different materials for preparation of different topics in science.
