Wally, you're going to be fine.  My advice is that you chill out a bit.  If you really haven't been doing your casebook reading, it might be a good idea to read some of the cases and notes to internalize the modes of legal analysis to which your professors hoped to expose you.  Otherwise, you seem very prepared.  Exams are a little unpredictable, but you're smart and you've done more prepping than most people, and I'm sure you'll do at least reasonably well.  The worst thing that could happen at this point is burnout or freakout, so just try to avoid either.  Really.

Thanks, Miss P -- ever wise.

:)

I did just take a practice exam in which I botched an entire issue because I thought 12(e) could be in an answer -- it can't, because that would defeat the entire point of asking for more particulars -- but, hopefully, that'll teach me a lesson about looking up an unfamiliar rule.

I also botched more minor stuff with Rule 4 and waivers, but it wasn't botched so much as missed.  Apparently, if the defendant doesn't return the waiver, the plaintiff is again responsible for service within the 120 days.  (I also forgot about 4(m)).

Rule 4 is a wolf in sheep's clothing, for sure. :)

There have been days this week where I've believed death would be a blessing.

kind of melodramatic there, don't you think?

Eh, don't worry about it.  Hyperbole has long been one of my main coping mechanisms.
