the place i'm taking the mcat in doesn't even allow paper/pencil
they give you 2 laminated sheets of paper, 2 dry-erase markers, and a dry-erase eraser.
So I will need 2 hands to uncap the marker and all that jazz anyway. its stupid.

But if I did have a paper/pencil I would still use the mouse with my right just because if you really think about it, you probably won't be saving any time that way.

Leave the marker uncapped in your left hand. That way you can easily transfer it to the right.
