Now is the time to start going back over old chapters and concepts you may have forgotten. Finals are a double edged sword. On the one edge if you do well the 20% towards your semester grade could boost your grade up. However, on the other edge, if they are taken too lightly you can just as easily slide down a letter grade. Here's the secret in case you don't know it already- Finals aim to be comprehensive, but given the limited time to take the test, only the key concepts are focused on not the minutiae. So, knowing this, go back over your old quizzes, tests, chapter reviews in the book, and do the study guide(twice) that your teacher gives you. Focus on the core topics first then dig deeper into the finer details.
