that had happened to me so many times already, and yes it is very very frustrating. i reviewed a whole bunch and not one of those i reviewed came out of the test. they said review this and that... i guess some teachers are just plain cruel...

The people who make tests.. LOVE to throw us curve-balls. It's so annoying. I once had a WHOLE test where I studied the material we went over in class, and it turned out the test was mainly focusing on the small print; foot-notes, and little things that we were supposed to catch, rather than the big picture. I feel like some teachers and professors are out there to get you - I really do. I would much rather (and I have a much easier time) remembering the bigger concepts and events than small things, like "What color was Benjamin Franklin wearing when he discovered electricity?" (lol, dumb example, but you get the point). Sometimes tests can just be dumb. That's why it's sometimes a good idea to ASK the teacher or professor who is giving the test, which material will be included on it. Sometimes they tell ya, and sometimes they don't.
