I decided to try new study habits for my third round of exams (I'm an MS1). Normally, I would cram 3-4 days prior to the exam and do decent on the exam. However, I didn't like feeling stressed and worried if I would pass. So, I changed my study habits. What I did was take all the lectures for that block and space them out so I would study 1/day (and learn it cold then review it the next day or two before I moved on to the next lecture) until the day before the exam, where I would just review all my weak points and do practice questions. I knew the material COLD inside and out. So, you'd think I would do SIGNIFICANTLY better on the exams, right? WRONG!!! I actually ended up doing WORSE than if I would have crammed, despite knowing the information solid. WTF?! What a waste of 2.5 weeks of studying.
