I've heard from a few sources that when it comes to studying, the best approach to take is: Study for finals, not for class. Thoughts?
it really depends on each professor. for example, my torts prof was VERY socratic. if you werent prepared for class, he'd pin you to the wall and make you feel like a complete idiot. others were much more forgiving. for the sake of your own stress levels, you better prepare for classes like that. it's also the best way to internalize the material. but yes, the advice you got is typically right. when it comes down to it, the exam is what matters, and the best way to prepare for those is commercial outlines, emanual flash cards, and hornbooks.
