Exam as at 8 am on Thurs. What's going to be the best way to prepare in the limited time I have left?

Prof. only gave us one practice exam too

This is going to hurt.

Find exams from other profs that are similar. Go over hypos/exams with classmates. Review your outline. Relax.

What he said &....

Is it open book? If not -> memorize the crap out of it
If so -> memorize as most as you can

Do the obvious it works... get as many practice exams from your prof/school as you can and as many as you can... even if you're just issue spotting

If you're a 1L and it's an open book exam, your highest RoI right now would probably be from learning about what the hell is expected of you on a law school exam in general (getting to maybe, guides here, etc.). Maybe a practice exam, but don't get so mired in practice problems you lose sight of how to do practice problems well.

Re-read your outline over and over and over and over, making hand notes in areas you realize you missed something, etc. Saturate, run some practice questions, eat a high quality meal the night before (steak, whatever), orgasm, and get some sleep.
