How to study for physics finals?

I have physics finals coming up and I need to study well. Do you have any recommendations while studying?

Do the 2 and 3 dot problems from the sections if your professor likes to give hard tests. If not you might pick some 1 dots that you can't do easily in your head.
 
Sorry, but the topics are: UAM, newton's laws of motion, UCM, momentum and conservation of energy. So how do I prepare?

Make sure you understand elastic vs. inelastic collisions, kinematics problems are self explanatory, understand your forces directions and points. It's hard to say without knowing where you are at. One thing you can never go wrong with is just solving problems.

A professor from Buffalo State University made a fantastic studying guide. If it isn't taking up too much time of yours, here's the link, I suggest you skim through it. It has some useful information!
