    I'm playing a Wizard in a 3.5E campaign at the moment and that's exactly what I do with my character. The only difference is that I use The Other Game Company's Spell Cards PDF, that I bought from DriveThruRPG, printing out the spell cards I want as is needed.

    I have them sorted by level and then alphabetically. It makes picking spells each day really easy. I just write down the spell names as I flip through. When I need to refer to the spell wording I can find the spell in a matter of seconds. Really happy with the set up.

I need to see the exact text to grok how my players misunderstand the text and point out how it really works.
    I do that just fine without the complete text.

    I don't include any of the spells not in my spellbook. It keeps it fairly small and very easy to flip though and see what I want. I didn't like having the cards in a pile, or spread out on the table., but having them organized in 3x3 sheets was perfect.

    Same here. I only include the spells in my spellbook, not all the spells in the PHB.

    Caveat Emptor. I read the day one reviews, and held off buying. If more people did that, maybe they'd get it right on the first print run. Not apologizing for them though or praising them, but I put in my 2 coppers because I guess my feeling was that the thread was slamming them for good behavior. Such is the Internet though.

    Although this is a good idea, it never seems to work in our instant gratification society.

    If it wasn't for the 'instant gratification society' there would be no day one reviews for people to make informed decisions. I am new to pnps and bought the arcane and the druid decks and was greatly disappointed about the lack of a concentration denotation and not having all warlock spells [as they put it]. Its good that they listened to feedback but leaving out an essential mechanic like concentration and advertising that every spell for a class is included I feel is a faulty product and they should at least offer some sort of discount for the poor shlubs [like me] who paid for an incomplete product.

    I did the same thing. I'm playing a wizard, so have categorised my spells as "Prepared" and "Unprepared". I printed two baseball card sized sheets with those words on them to put in my folder to indicate whether I had remembered those spells or not. If I change my prepared spells after a long rest, I simply swap the cards between one section and the other.

    To keep track of slots, I use colour-coded row counters. They're labelled so my DM and I know exactly what each counter shows. My protector sheets are hole punched; I've attached the counters to them with string.

    Too bad there is no mention of the other missing spell card, Dissonant Whispers. It's a warlock Great Old One expanded spell for 1st level that doesn't show up in any other class spell list. I'm pretty sure they built their list of spells for the cards from the Class Spell Lists instead of from the alphabetical list of all the spells in the PHB to make sure they got them all.
