Is it bad that I want to go to bars when my exam is about a month away?

On a Tuesday? That's just weird in general.

not going out on the weekends, if that is what you like to do, is a sure way to burn out fast.

I don't know how many people like to study with flash cards but I know I do for closed book exams. I just found a program called CueCard which can be used to create different sets of electronic flashcards. You can create both sides of the card and then study them like you would real flash cards. Also, it lets you select whether you got the card right or not and targets cards you struggle with when you study. Just thought I would share this in case anyone else is interested!

Everyone needs a break. I say go out until like a week or two before finals. Just don't get so drunk that you can't wake up and study, and instead waste the whole day sleeping/watching tv/ect.

What did you order? There's a lot of VLS reppin in this thread revival.


Already had Chimmer for Con, Understanding for Prop and Charleston for K's... ordered E&E for Con and K's and Principals of Prop, for the hypos as the other sups I bought have none.

And yes... Good VLS Rep on the comeback.

I feel like my TLS "posts per day" increase the closer it gets to finals.

Remember, ladies and gentlemen, that the only way to destroy exams is to act like any other effective killer. Sleep with one eye open. Don't talk to anybody about what you're gonna do or how you're gonna do it before you do it (except on teh interwebz). Drink plenty of 40s, but always stay on point. Shadow your victims before you do the deed (aka look at what exams have done in the past). When in the act, remember the only thing that matters is that you kill that mothafucka dead. None of this nine shots randomly into the back of a car. If you do that, the exam will crawl out and start rapping. No. You pop off. Then you pop off some more. Then you pop off more. Then you go to the hospital to make sure it still ain't breathin'. Then you leave. And you immediately forgot it happened. Except for when you light one up dolo on your couch on the late night. Then you can laugh. And count your stacks.
