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

Everyone's got a different style.  Some people need to chill after a final.  Others finish a final and go straight to the library to start studying for the next one.  Do whatever feels right for you.  If you feel like you need a break, by all means TAKE IT.  Finals aren't as a big a deal afer all is said and done as they feel right now.

I agree w/everyone here about studying all semester and then putting that extra push in towards the end (I don't know how anyone crams at the end.)
However, it makes for a lllllllllllllllllllllllllonnn nnnnng last couple of weeks.

Did any of you go into seclusion and cut off contact with friends and loved ones while doing bar review courses?  My boyfriend is taking the test in about a week. Around a month and a half prior to now he just got crazy.  He works as a computer engineer during the day and takes his bar review at night. He listens to the tapes during his commute and he has just dropped out of sight. Is that normal? Am I taking it too personally?

He won't start nailing the other chick until he passes the bar and decides to upgrade.  I mean in case he fails he's gonna need a mercy mount or two to raise his spirits...he'll get the younger and prettier model after the first job offer.
