Student Outwits Prof By Bringing 3x5 FOOT Cheat Sheet To Exam

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- An Anne Arundel Community College teacher says he learned a valuable lesson about being specific on his first test day of the semester.

Reb Beatty, who teaches business administration at the school, says he typically allows a "3x5 notecard" for students to use as a cheat sheet during exams.

"Today, a student shows up with this," Beatty wrote on Facebook caption of a student with a jumbo-sized test guide.

"Sure enough, it is 3x5... feet. As precise as I am, apparently I never specified inches and therefore yes, it was allowed. Well played and lesson learned for me."

His post has been shared more than 20,000 times and liked more than 24,000 times since he shared it on Tuesday.
