Stupid History, essay questions are the bane of my existence.Quote:
Yeah, if you don't have a good grip on the material by now chances are you are screwed anyways. Although I did some major cramming for a history final one weekend and brought my grade up from what was probably some form of a D to a C+ by getting a solid A on the final. Even my TA that graded it was impressed so much he had to email me after grading my final and ask how the heck I did so well on the final compared to my other exams that I didn't do so well on. Let's just say me and about 4 others in my section were all pretty worried about our grades in that class and a weekend of mostly studying and quizzing each other did us all a lot of good.
Now, the best classes to "study" for finals are ones you take pass/fail. I did that with a government class once and figured out that I only needed around 20% on the final to pass the class so I really didn't even study for that one. In fact 60% of the exam was multiple choice and a few fill in the blanks so for the last essay parts I just wrote "no thanks, it's been fun!" and was the 1st one done with the final. lol
