  2. To study efficiently make sure you know the definitions, the algorithms/methods for computing things, the formulas for things, and results/proof methods we use most often. Perhaps write them in your own words, or explain them to a friend.
  3. Do the lecture examples, practice questions and old homeworks again without looking at the answers.
  4. Go through the posted homework solutions to gain another point of view on solving the questions.
