    Yes, but unlike tests, ALL of life is open book.

    Memorizing laws in the forms of their equations is very useful but what really is most necessary is to understand those laws and knowing how to handle the equations and relate a physics description with the appropriate equations and solve. Without knowing the laws and having the mathematical skills and understanding, the written laws in their form as equations is lost for you.
