Re: Actually a "Cheat Sheet" is a Good Idea, Just not for what you think it is

I agree, knowing what you want to accomplish with the shot, and then how to get there is really important.

I'm relatively new to all this too, and I'll never forget how excited I was to learn the relationship between Aperature and Shutter Speed, and how ISO plays into that.

To me, it would seem if you were in a hurried situation (wildlife or nature etc) and had to be making decisions in a hurry, you wouldn't want to be trying to refer to a cheat sheet of how to set up the camera. Having some knowledge of the type of scenario you're going to encounter and having the cam sort of pre-configured (whether it be Full M, or A, or S) would make a big difference.
