However, references may not be written in during the examination session. Any candidate caught writing, highlighting, underlining and/or indexing in the references during the examination will be reported to the Arizona Registrar of Contractors. Furthermore, candidates are not permitted to bring in any additional papers (loose or attached) with their approved references. References may be tabbed/indexed with permanent tabs only.

You can have it spiral bound, stapled or you may hole-punch it and put it in a binder
