Familiarize yourself with the new Banner 9 Keyboard Shortcuts.
If you're accustomed to navigating Banner 8 with just your keyboard, you may want to print this cheat sheet of Banner 9 keystrokes, and tape it to your keyboard. Before printing you could re-size it or change the terminology to suit you. It is sized to fit just above the function keys on your keyboard, and the changes from Banner 8 are marked with asterisks. It's not as comprehensive as the one above, but these little helps can be literally at your fingertips.
