23 ISN's are easy to do and worth a lot of points, so take time and effort to do them well. "Always update your table of contents so papers don't get messed up - or in case of an ISN check. "An ISN is a great tool, keep it organized! "You have to spend quality time on your ISN. "Don't leave your ISN until the last day, otherwise you may be up to the early morning hours finishing assignments. "Colorize things. It looks so much better that way "Keep it in order, because you never know when a notebook check might come up. "Do not save your ISN until the last minute. Remember, it counts as much as a test."
