+1 I like full sheets as well- Murals I cut a large piece of paper off the roll and do a single exposure.

I use full sheets for normal prints beginning with the general exposure test print, the practice being that I need to evaluate exposure in context with the entire print. Cutting test strips for normal sheet sizes has always been a wasteful, time consuming, sometimes frustrating, false economy for me.
