So is it possible to be environmentally sensitive and have a good lawn? Yes, according to Frank Rossi, an associate professor of horticulture at Cornell University, who offers a crib sheet:... The Washington Post

Dear all,

Does a crib sheet mean a piece of paper with a simple answer? Thanks.

    Crib sheets can be used to cheat in exams - they might have specimen answers written down.


    These days a crib sheet is more synonymous with an information sheet, although some of the original cheating sense is preserved, albeit in a humorous way - the implication being that the crib sheet might enable one to masquerade as an expert, or that it in some way provides a short cut to depth of knowledge (a bit like a bluffer's guide).
