Topics on a cheat sheet
To study for my semester final for calc bc, which will be an ab practice exam, I'm making a little cheat sheet with all the major rules and stuff to help me study and remember everything. I just want to ask you guys if there's anything you would suggest me adding to the list or if I'm missing something. Note also that it may seem redundant to put some things on the list, such as the quotient rule or product rule which are so simple, but I plan to make photocopies and give them to calc ab kids who I tutor. So, how does my list look so far?

Differential Calculus
Product/Quotient Rule
Chain Rule
Exponential Function Derivatives
e^u
a^u
ln u
log base a u
x^x
Trig/arcTrig function Derivatives
Linearization Algorithm
Mean Value Theorem
Newton's Method of appox. zeros

Integral calculus
Fundamental Theorem of Calculus
Average/Mean Value Rule
Max/Min Rule
Simpson's Rule
Trapezoid Evaluation of integrals
LRAM, MRAM, RRAM rules (e.g. when it's an overestimate, underestimate, etc.)
Common Antiderivatives
(A few trig functions, ln x, 1/x, etc)
Tabulation example
methods of integrating by parts

Thanks

In my view, a "Cheat Sheet" is simply a listing of things you don't actually know. Just as a matter of personal respect, I would want an empty cheat sheet.

skeeter

relationships between f, f' , and f'' (graphs)

implicit derivatives, related rates, and optimization examples.

accumulation functions

slope fields, separable DE's

fyi, Newton's method and integration by parts is not on the AB exam anymore.

... and, maybe you should just call it a "study" sheet.
