Having a handy reference guide at your desktop can make you more productive. You can quickly look up information and after awhile it becomes committed to memory. You are more likely to remember the information if it's next to you than if you constantly search for the information.
The author of VisiBone explains very well what they do:
I make stuff to help you remember and use what you've learned about making websites. Or if you're just a little adventurous, clues to what to try just beyond what you've learned. Memory joggers. Facts you keep looking up. The most common word for them is cheatsheets.
There are 12 different cheat sheet available in very well printed cards:
In 2006, I purchased the laminated Browser Book. This is still something that i use today - more than 10 year later!
Sure you could Google the information, or have a PDF Cheat Sheet on your desktop. But I have found a printed copy is a good way to remember something. So that when I am on the phone or waiting for some computer process to happen, I can just glance at a page and be remember of a function or style format.
You can only get the VisiBone guides from their website. I would highly recommend spending the extra to get the laminated version. I am pretty sure that mine has lasted 10+ years because of the lamination.
Oh and if you want to mark up the guide, use a wax pen. It works well!
