There probably isn’t a student on the planet who hasn’t crammed the night before (or right before) a major exam. You would think that more recently viewed information would somehow stick better. However, research shows that when information is learned over a number of sessions, students perform significantly better on tests.
So instead of suffering a four-hour math marathon immediately before the exam, try studying in chunks. Depending on your class, an hour a day starting a week to several days before the big test should increase your chances of acing it.
