So I know someone already asked about note sheet organization, but I too am curious about how, specifically, people like to lay out their notes. Last year, I broke down my note sheet by topic, essentially having one section for each bullet point on the rules sheet. The issue was that, especially as it grew to contain more information, I'd often run into terms which I remembered having put down on my note sheet, but which I had forgotten the meaning/general topic area of and had no good way of locating on the sheet in the limited time that I had. I thought multiple times about trying to implement an alphabetized glossary of terms whereby I could look up definitions quickly. The issue with that idea is that it wouldn't be an efficient use of space to have the same terms repeated both in a glossary and in a topic-organized section and if I used only a glossary then I would be sacrificing all of the benefits of a topic-organized system (which, on balance, are probably greater than the benefits of a glossary).
Has anyone else run into this problem/thought about possible solutions for it? Generally speaking, what organizational systems have worked for you guys for either DP or other note sheet events in past years?
