Our team usually prints notes in font 5 or 5.5 using small margins. On the margin areas, we also write additional notes in small print (or have the people with good handwriting write it for us).

Arial Narrow is a nice font. Color-coding is also a good idea, because it can help you find things more easily. Plus, it looks cool from a distance if your font size is really small.

Have no negative space. Moreso than the font type you use, handling space can help, in my opinion. Eliminate any "After" spacing in your text, and, if you want to be really space conservative, you can decrease the horizontal spacing, too. Use appropriate text wrapping, too.

I guess i' m kind of confused about what to study as far as types of microbes go. Do we need to know about the macroscopic forms of fungi and algae? what about the structures of plant and animal cells?

I was wondering, is this event harder than what is learned in AP Bio? Or is it just that stuff, but more in depth?

Personally I found the AP Biology material to be a good starting point, especially the section on parasitic worms. However, the material for Microbes greatly expands on the AP Bio curriculum. You would need to go both more in depth, as well as breadth. One such example of a topic not covered enough by AP Bio material are the diseases.

The microbes to study are essentially all the microbes you would find in any textbook. These are:

Bacteria
Fungi
Algae
Protists
Parasitic Worms (helminthes)
Viruses

And to a lesser degree, archaea. As far as macroscopic things, I do not believe that it will be covered (most of the time) but it is always good to overstudy. Finally, structures of cells are pretty important.

Hope this helps! :D

Going to the wiki would be a great first step. The test exchange also has some practice tests to get you started.
