update- so it is funny this post popped back up since i wrote that in December. My grades turned out well, but civ pro was my lowest grade (luckily it was a midterm worth 25% b/c it is a year long class)
i just had my first final this round yesterday. no 24 hour finals this time and my exams are more spaced out. i am still sleep deprived and heavily caffinated but not as stressed out.
i agree w/ lostmymonkeys. i didnt slack off during the semester, but right before exams i need to work my ass off. studying about 14-16 hours a day- i go to the gym every day and try to eat healthy. having 1-2 red bulls and tons of tea. just my style- it worked last semester so i dont want to change it now. diff strokes for diff folks maybe
