For me, it all depends on the topic i'm studying for.. lol =D But normally, i will start at least 1-2 weeks in advance b4 the actual test so that i can squeeze in last minute things.. lol =D But what matters most, is to have a good sleep the night b4 your exams and it will help in your memory, but never stay up to study as u will forget everything once u enter the examination hall ^_^ Good luck and all the best ^_^

If i dun prepare, my parent swill be nagging at me, because i dun have my own room to hide.. lol =D and so i have no choice but to study and have some self discipline.. haha =D Accounts is actually quite easy, need not really study, but only need to understand the basics and a grade of at least B is waiting to be scored.. hehe =D ALso, accounts, has got not much theory too, even if have, the points/marks for it are very little only.. hehe

i always did cramming! most of the time i studied few hours before the exams. i have lots of things to do that is why don't have enough time to study in advance. i am now in my 3rd year colleges but still my habit remain since i am still in high school. cramming is good but sometimes you may encounter mental block.

I rarely do study, I only study when I am about to have an exam, like you . When I do study it usually takes about 5 or 10 minutes for me to learn, or look over the information again. I don't have too many problems with the exam when it comes after I do that. The extra 5 or 10 minutes really does help make the information stay in your head for a while though, or at least until the test is over haha.

Well the difficulty of an exam would tell me how long should I study for it. Well if it involves a lot of memorization it takes me about an hour and a half. My suggestion to you is that you should get enough rest the day before your exam and also try not to study anything an hour before your exam. Doing so might help you integrate into your mind whatever you have studied so that you would know what to answer without getting mixed up what you have studied. Good luck in your exams.
