Sleep nicely before your exam, but it still depends on what is convenient to you. For me, (just for me) I also pray for it. Good luck.

don't exhaust yourself studying. If you feel like the studying is doing you no good, take a break and come back to it when your mind is refreshed.

I find that quizzing and/or flashcards helps a lot

caffeine is also the studiers friend, just don't overdo it, and make sure it doesn't make you lose sleep

I say 8 hours of sleep the night before a test. Make sure you eat a good dinner the night before, and a nice hearty breakfast the day-of. Don't eat right before the test, give your body an hour or so to digest.

If it's a long (1hr or more) test, avoid sugary stuff before the test. Crashing in the middle of an exam sucks.

Finally - homework IS studying. Just make sure that you are reviewing all pertinent material.

People say this sounds a little out there but what I do before an exam is drink a little, go out and have fun two nights before the exam, gets all the jitters out....sex helps too =)

I honestly study that much that 3 days to the exams I'm relatively carefree, the worst that can happen to me is if I panic, which I've had problems before, just relax.

well you're lucky if you have time to do that. At my college I have three midterms a semester (why the hell do they still call them midterms?) for each subject, I'm always studying for an exam or writing a paper..
