  • I wish I could help. I was the type of person who always crammed the night before an exam. I know some people study a little bit every night or have people quiz them.

  • I paid attention in class, never missed class, took notes, and crammed the night before an exam (I hardly ever did the readings unless I knew I'd get called out on it). Just the act of writing notes makes the info stick in your head. Sometimes, when I was real worried and I had to memorize places, dates, etc. I rewrote my notes and studied like that. But let me stress, writing them. Not typing them out and reading later. If it has been that long for you, you are part of a whole other thought process, you need to write it out, not type it out.

  • And btw, I graduated with honors and am a proud member of Phi Beta Kappa. All from cramming and paying attention.

  • Take lots of notes - handwriting them helps me. Study in a quiet location with no interruptions.
