hey there... if you're like me, you have midterm junk going on right about now. Chances are you haven't even looked at the required reading and you have a few hours before your doom. Here's what you need to do:
Meet up with another kid who has made him or herself some really great, organized study aids like flash cards and stuff..... then tell them you think you should study together. Now take all their flash cards or whatever and go through them and make up little songs and rhymes and things to help you remember all the crap you have to regurgitate. Pretty soon you'll be blazing through that test and laughing all the way. Then you won't feel so bad when you bomb.
It worked for me, so take it or leave it. peace.
