This is not about cramming the night before. This is about continuing to study something you have been reading for weeks, in one final night of "preparation" before an exam. I honestly think it does me much more harm than good. Does anyone agree? I feel like if I get a good night's sleep, workout, relax (no video games or TV, though) the night before, I feel much better about the test the next day and perform better (this is of course assuming that I have already prepared in the days before and feel relatively comfortable.) However, this makes little sense in my mind. What it really feels like, is that during the test, if the problems aren't very similar to the ones I prepared for and drilled the night before, I feel a sense of despair, and I give up on the problems quicker. To add to that, I am more nervous during the test. If I relax the night before, when I see problems, I feel more comfortable pooling what I've learned over the entire subject matter and thinking critically about the problem. It's kind of hard to explain. Any input?
