I think the most I have spent studying for a final was 8 hours?

So anywhere from 0-8 hours, depending on how hard the class is, how much effort I have put in, and how often I have gone to class (Or teaching myself outside of class if I didn't go).

I love Finals. I usually plan out my schedule so I can sort of coast through Finals and not have to worry about getting an A. If a solid B on the Final will net me a A in the class I'm happy.

Best website for a cram session to go over specific key concepts that would likely be on an exam.

I go to all the classes and learn throughout the semester but im not taking any chances on studying for 30 mins or something and figuring I can pull a B. I like to go into finals knowing ill get an A.

For my bs classes to fil reqs I ussually study the night before for a few hours, and then study for an hour or two right before the test.

For classes in my major I'll ussually space it out and make a little study guide. Make sure I know my shit.

For all my tests I ussually spend an hour or so beforehand cramming any additional info I can find into my head with the help of an energy drink to keep me extra alert and focused.

Are you in high school? Because you can't do that in college.

If you are in a good college program its impossible to only study 30 minutes before a test and get a good grade. He is either in high school or he is getting D's on his finals.

Even the best student study for more than a day for the finals
