Serious Pedagogical Differences

A commentor on my blog, Bunetta, just referred to my pedagogical practice of giving students study sheets before exams, as follows:

The pedagogy you describe is a little like drug-testing airline pilots on a schedule that you mail to them in advance.
I have already responded more in depth to the comments. I just thought I would see what y'all think of this analogy. Short story: Bunetta and I have very different pedagogical goals.
