I review the night before the day of exam, i often listen to music without lyrics while reviewing my notes. But sometimes, i feel bored reviewing my notes, i just play video games and have fun befor the exam, i always say "I will just take my exam with stock knowledge!", As a student or an good adviser here in mylot, What do you do when you exam is the day after tommorow? May be it can help me.

I do some scanning on my notes and do some reviewing too. Its also good that you study with your friends, because exchanging of answers could help you remember a lot. JUst dont start talking with other things aside from your notes,the moment you start talking about someone or anything else your group study would be a flop

i just can't concentrate my mind to have a revision the day before the exam.i don't think it helps much to pass the exam.i regard the study at peacetime as the most important.but to some students,to have a review before exam will help have a general idea of what you have learnt and give you more confidence.

These days I just sit back and relax in the day or two leading up to the exam. At one time, I foolishly thought I could cram everything into my brain. That was never really a good idea to do before the exam. In fact, I think I could have done better on many exams had I decided not to study as much and as close to the exam. There is something to be said about exercising my brain and then there is something to be said about giving it a rest. I think if you take notes and listen to the teacher closely and not get distracted during class, you will be more than fine for the most part. Perhaps, a little bit of studying will be required to refresh the mind but lots of mind numbing studying is rarely necessary. At least it is not for me. Your experiences may vary and there are times where a bit of revision is required.

I have a pretty decent memory, so I just skim through notes a bit. Helping other people study actually helps me more. I've always had study buddies/groups because the process of explaining thing in other terms so that other people can understand it helps me think about it in new ways. I usually just chill before class, don't generally study the day of tests because it makes me freeze up. Don't know if that helps you. Good luck!

i often relax my mind the day before the exam to prevent me from being so exhausted. I do things that will keep me away from worrying the exam like cleaning my nails(manicure/pedicure) or my room, listening to music, surfing the net, and a lot more.
