Work through old tests
You need to have a place to start and figure out what you know and what you don’t know. Your old tests are the place to find out. Go through, copy all the problems and mix them up. (Don’t look at the answers while you do it!!) Just dive in and start taking the tests over again. You’ve already gotten a bit of a refresher by looking back over your outlines and flash cards. You’ll probably be surprised by how many problems you still know how to do. You don’t have to study the ones you already remember how to do! Put a star by any problems you didn’t remember and go through your standard study process with those. Try to work through a chapter a day.
Once you’ve got this setup accomplished, use the study steps that you used for the regular tests.
Even though it seems like a royal pain, having to take a final exam in a math class is a really good thing because it gives you the refresher that you’ll need before the next math course in the sequence.
If you don’t have to take another math class, then, OK, having to take the final exam IS a royal pain. But, just think of it as a good brain exercise for success!
