Cramming

Cramming is useful in emergencies;
it is not good for long term learning.

See Emergency test preparation
for an alternative, structured approach to cramming

Strategies for cramming include:

  • Preview material
    to be covered

  • Be selective:
    skim chapters for main points

  • Concentrate on reviewing
    and learning main points

  • Don't read information
    you won't have time to review
