Wondering if I should commit more time to torts (last exam) now or just keep it fresh and hit it hard later...


I'm focusing more on the first exams right now

My first final is the 12th and my last final is the 21st. I find it funny that my last final is on the day the world is supposed to end.

Pleasye wrote:Does anyone besides me have closed book/closed note exams?

I feel like so many of the studying tips don't apply as much to me because I have to memorize so much, blah :(.


All of my exams this semester are closed book. I feel your pain!

I am still planning to make the attack outlines / checklists so it is a bit easier to control the amount of information I have to memorize.

Nonsense! All this caffeine sets up the perfect opportunity for some intermittent fasting!

Time to start seeing all KINDS of gains. Look at the definition! Look at the separation! Look at it. Look at it.

Respect it.
