What Is a Chemistry Cheat Sheet?
A Chemistry Cheat Sheet is a shortlist of chemistry notes students may use for reference during their studies or exams - with or without the permission of their teacher or instructor. Prepare a set of formulas, equations, and important chemistry-related facts while you are doing your homework or revising for an examination, or simply because you want to summarize crucial information you have read in your chemistry manual.

How to Make a Chemistry Cheat Sheet?
Follow these steps to create a Chemistry Cheat Sheet:
- Consider printing out a clean template but writing it out by hand. While you may begin the cheat sheet with certain formulas and rules typed out already, prepare enough free space to add more new information you find out during your studies.
- It is up to you what to put in a cheat sheet, but most Chemistry Cheat Sheets contain formulas, steps that help to solve a problem, lists of rules and scientific principles, key concepts, their definitions, and scope of application, small tables and graphics, important figures and numbers, significant dates in the history of chemistry. Add pictures or drawings you find online or use different colors and highlighters to see the most essential things first.
- If you are learning something new every week, add items to the cheat sheet once you come back home from the class. You will be able to review the key points learned during the semester or year and keep track of everything your teacher focuses on - it is very likely that the main points of each class will be useful during the examination.
- Include references to a manual and textbook or simply indicate the pages to read more on a certain subject and find what you need quicker. Do not forget about examples and exercises - you may indicate the page and instantly refresh the correct way to deal with a complicated problem in your memory.
- While there is no need to rewrite a periodic table, it is a good idea to create a cheat sheet to examine chemical elements, their properties, and periodic trends. For instance, you may classify elements by their physical and chemical characteristics, learn more about metals and nonmetals, transition metals, and inner transition metals.
- Focus on inorganic chemistry in one cheat sheet and on organic chemistry in another. You may even create files on each unit from a textbook and after each class you take, with a cheat sheet for every matter and problem, illustrated with formulas and examples. Most high school and first-year students benefit from a separate General Chemistry Cheat Sheet - even if you had no previous knowledge of chemistry, a properly made list of formulas and main items will steer you in the right direction.
- Keep the information in your Chemistry Cheat Sheets up-to-date and add more references and pages as the semester or year goes on - this will make your preparation time for finals shorter.
