• Practice problems. If it's a university exam, see if the university's library has previous exams from the class, especially from the same professor, and if so, take some time to work through the problems on the exam. Don't rush yourself, but keep track of time to make sure you will be able to complete the exam within the time limit. If you take longer than expected, do similar practice problems until you are fast enough that time control won't become an issue. If your professor allows a crib sheet, make sure you organize it in a way that allows you to find the information you need as quickly as possible, or memorize information that you might need most often so that you don't even have to search for it anyway. Try to do this at least a week before the actual exam, and then use the day before the exam to brush-up, since forgetting something and then refreshing will help you be able to recall it faster than cramming.
