I would like to find a way to create an actual index at the end of a document.

In short, an exam that I am going to be taking is open-book, however nothing electronic can be used. So any reference material needs to be printed out.

Here is an example of a document that I will be printing out for reference, however it would be much more efficient with an index at the end listing each page that each word occurs on.

Ideally, common words like 'and' and 'the' would be left out, but that would not be critical.

Is there a way, either with Adobe Acrobat Pro (maybe using Javascipt?) or another application, that will put together an index for me?
