In my second year I figured out the secret to finals: go to every class, do all your reading as assigned, do all assignments as assigned. Finals are relatively painless if you do that. In fact, school is relatively painless if you do that, even if it's a 100% final. Get behind in a class, in particular, a class that builds cumulatively all semester, like say a math or physics class, and you are sunk. Conn, enjoy things. I think most of us wish we could have done school on the parent's dime. +1. My Calculus final doesn't review what we went over the beginning of the semester, but the chapter we are currently on is a sum of all the information that came before this chapter. Jon.
