What Might be a good way to make my cheat sheet?
What might want to include?
Please help!
Include everything you find about topics on the rules. Also remember to include pictures and diagrams, especially for this event.
A good way is to jot down everything you find about any of the topics of the rules. Maybe make sections for different parts of the rules. Don't worry about fitting them into pages until you've at least got a ton of info. Then, you can look into further organization and trimming the notesheet down. Definitely include pictures and diagrams.

Does anyone have some helpful places to attain notes? I seem to stop finding notes but when I look in the question thread, I still see info I don't know.

find a big, college-level textbook as a free, very long pdf online. read the whole thing. there will be content you don't know, probably?

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?

I never did DP while the topic was glaciers, but Tarbuck is in general an okay starting point for a lot of different earth sciences topics?

Also, yes, I'm alive, I'm just at a university without a scioly competition so i don't check the forums much because there's not much i'm useful for?

Does anyone know what the best ways to split this up with a partner are? On a lot of events there are ways to split it in two but everything seems really related on this one.

I would suggest having both partners clearly understand all of the topics. The years I did DP (although it was tectonics), the tests were often pressed for time.
