Class is starting so soon, which means that you'll have a test way sooner than your shriveled-up summer brain is ready for.
I know it's scary, but think back to The Dark Times: What were the study strategies you used during finals that had the biggest payoff?
Do you "teach" someone what you've been studying?
Do you make notecards?
Do you study a little bit each day or do you give yourself regular breaks?
Are you more of a highlighter?
Or do you draw out really elaborate mind maps?
Or do you do something else entirely that works wonders?
