How not to study for the exam.

1.
Park the markers .

Don't bother reading through your calculus text and underlining stuff with yellow marker. A tremendous waste of time. This is not an efficient way to study. It is a good way to drift into an afternoon nap. Doing problems is the way to go.

2.
Don't spend a lot of time bothering your professor with questions about what will be on the exam, unless they have completely ignored this issue. They hate this kind of question, and it almost always fails to provide useful information. What will be on the exam is completely obvious - exactly what has been on last year, and the year before. Time spent wheedling is better used studying.
