  2. Most printers can't print on such a small paper size. Your time would
    be better spent studying rather than looking for novel ways to avoid
    studying.

    Valid point, however I am a college senior with upcoming finals. Most of the
    study guides from the professors are on MS word, so I am assuming that it
    would be less time consuming to just cut and paste the questions and answers
    unto note cards rather than manually write them. I also have an all-in-one
    printer/scanner/copier that prints very close to the margins. So I ask the
    question again, is there a way to compose index cards on this program?

  4. The problem is not how close to the edge your printer can print. A 3x5
    card is so small that most printers can't properly pick up and feed it
    through the printer without jamming. Some photo printers are designed
    to print on small paper sizes. If your printer can handle small paper
    sizes, you should be able to select the 3x5 size in Word by clicking on
    File | Page Setup | Paper | Paper Size.

    I suppose you could print 4 cards on one letter-size page, and then
    manually cut them into individual cards. For this, you can create a
    landscape page layout with 0.5" margins on all sides, and insert a
    two-column by two-row table with the row height set to exactly 3" and
    column width set to exactly 5".

    Take a look at a software called ndxCards ( http://www.ndxcards,com ).
    It lets you take notes, ue the notes in your paper etc., and lets you
    make and print your own Flash cards.
