I am writing to ask you for advice on how I should go about studying for the upcoming Classical Mechanics exam. I would only be satisfied to get an A, nothing less, so I am willing to work hard. Although I realize that preparing for the midterm exam begins when the semester starts, I don't feel that my knowledge thus far will ensure me an A in the exam. I haven't really did much the past few weeks in the class so I don't have a good knowledge of the material as I would have liked to. And seeing how I have no idea of what to expect on the exam, your advice will be greatly appreciated. As far as I am aware, there are several techniques that I can use, such as, but not limited to: 1) redo all of the homework problems assigned starting from chapter 1 2) do 2 or more problems from each section from each chapter 3) and probably a more lazy and less proactive approach (and one that I don't plan on doing of course), simply review the homework problems done and sleep on it 4) etc. I also plan to do a couple of practice exams as a supplement.
