I know a lot of people like to cram the night before a test. It is kinda one of those images everyone has of a college student I think. But some people start a few days or even a week ahead of time to start studying their materials. Which type are you, and how do you study? I like to start a few days before hand, and review the notes quickly. Then I try and quiz myself. If I think I got it, I'll pretty much stop there. But if I think I need more work to be ready, then I'll make flashcards to start reviewing the material.
