My outlines were generally about 20-30 pages depending on the class. From that, I would make a 1 page, front and back checklist that I would either bring in to the exam or memorize and recreate during the exam. Most of my exams first year were closed book. If you do plan to use your outline on the exam, I think having a table of contents and tabbing it might be a good idea. For some people it may be just as effective or more effective to have what you need on 1-2 pages. Do not shrink the print down. What goes on those 2 pages are things that will be too hard to memorize or distinguish. Things that are easy to memorize / distinguish just stay in your head. Or at least that's how I did it.
