(1) Avoid Errors that could cost you your chance of winning a prize by checking your email receipts, bank statements, and tax returns before filling out any form.   (2) Make sure you have enough information on hand: have all your documents with you so that they can save time later.  (3) Check if it's "Required" before starting because otherwise they would not offer it as an option.  (4) Save yourself time by using "fill-out forms" like fill-in-the-blank and drop-down forms: they keep the information you put in concentrated and allow you to print immediately.   (5) Use the best software for your computer: choose word processing or spreadsheet instead of just opening Microsoft Word, Excel or other MS Office document.   (6) Don't use generic places on your form, consider looking for them in a specific location. Don't ask for salary range for example because that is an option you have to select.  (7) Avoid specific dates if you can; instead, go with months and years only (not a combination of both).   (8) Avoid having to fill out more than one form if you can. If you have to use multiple forms, make sure that the information is identical for all of them.  (9) Always save your files electronically in case of an error or if the software fails at a later time.  (10) And last but not least; have fun!

"No matter how many times I tell my students not to jot down notes on the question paper, they do that anyway," says Vatsavayi Chiranjeevi, a teacher at a private school in Hyderabad.

In India, one can find a lot of students cheating in different forms: copying during exams, writing down answers on their arms or hiding answers inside their socks. In fact, even teachers do not hesitate to cheat.

Cheating is a worldwide phenomenon and it has affected every part of our lives.

10 Tips for filling out an E-form Web content developer - "Mike Riebe"  -  http://www.webdevelopmentguru.com/blog/comments/10_tips_for_filling_out_an_eform.html

10 Tips for filling out an E-form 
(1) Acceptance of the terms and conditions. Before you submit any kind of data, you must check that you accept all the terms and conditions of the form. A common mistake made by users is to enter their personal details without reading the fine print. While it may be tempting to skip this step, it would be a huge mistake. If you want to benefit from raffles and services offered by many e-commerce establishments, your first step should always be to take a look at the fine print.  (2) Lengthy questionnaires - Surveys are great because they give you an opportunity to give feedback regarding products or services. However, they can turn into a nightmare if you are asked to fill out long questionnaires. The solution is simple: break them up and try not to spend too much time on each survey.  (3) Highlighting of the answers - It may seem obvious, but you have to highlight your correct answers manually, every time you switch from one survey to another. If possible, use compact pens. Otherwise, this can get quite frustrating and lead to errors in your data entry.
(4) Dates - Similarly for highlighting dates, it is best not to use mouse buttons that are too sensitive or require multiple clicks from the keyboard. If you want to make sure your date is correct, don't rely on the system - instead, input it manually.  (5) Errors - Correcting mistakes is vital for a justifiable survey results. However, it also poses a problem for users who want to submit their information within the shortest time possible. The best solution by far is to make sure you have plenty of paper with you and don't underestimate the importance of making corrections.  (6) Repeat surveys - If a survey takes half an hour or longer, make sure you do it multiple times in order to have more comprehensive data. There's nothing wrong with spending an hour on a survey, as long as it will make your future shopping experience much better.  (7) Place of residence - If you are extremely careful about the security of your personal data, you should check if the location you enter is secure enough. For example, if you select a "city" option and the form doesn't warn you before submitting data, there's a chance that an intruder may be able to find out where exactly your home is located.  (8) Date format - If you're filling out forms that are time sensitive, make sure the date format coincides with what's used in the default installation of your computer and browser. For example, if you live in India and you install MS Office on your computer, it will use DD-MM-YYYY format. However, if you type that information in as DD-MMM-YYYY in a form, it might result in an error message.  (9) Marks - Marks are of great interest to students and they will often do everything they can to get them. This is why you should avoid any complex systems that require more than one click of the mouse or more than one keystroke on the keyboard while recording results. If possible, get a buddy to help you out and always double check your data before submitting it.  (10) Confidentiality - It is important to make sure your answers will not be shared with third parties, especially if you are required to keep it confidential. If you are offered a survey for the company's own use, don't enter data that can help them better understand your behavior or preferences.
