  Abstract: An ongoing study is being performed involving the collection and evaluation of note sheets prepared by students for use on exams in a first-year algebra-based physics courses of 120-200 students. The note sheets are evaluated based on organization, quantity, the use of examples and diagrams, and the number of topics covered. In addition, a Likert scale survey was given to students regarding how they generated and used their note sheets. Preliminary results are presented and suggest negative correlations between exam grades and the quantity of equations on note sheets, and those who most strongly agreed with the statement "I referred to my note sheet many times during the exam." Positive correlations are found between exam grades and organization, and students who most strongly agreed with the statement "making my note sheet helped me review for the exam."
