|Insert laminated "cheat sheets"|
with index cards.
Here are the steps:
- Laminate both covers. You can use overlapping packing tape, but even better is a solid sheet of Lamination Paper. That way there are no seams for water to leak in (even though it will eventually get soaked, this will keep it in better condition for longer).
- As you drink from the firehose of classes the first few days, make time to prepare index card inserts for each class. At this moment, making these cards is far more important than getting sleep. You will use them every time you brief and every time you are in leadership -- for the rest of Ranger School.
|These plastic tabs hold up|
through anything, but bring
extra just in case.
If you are heading to Pre-Ranger, you will get a copy of the Ranger Handbook there. You can't bring this copy with you to Ranger School. I still strongly recommend you follow the steps above, and treat Pre-Ranger as if it is actually Ranger School. You'll figure out how you want to prep your book, and maybe make some mistakes you'll learn from.
