Fool proof method to exam domination that I used to graduate at the top of my class while managing to get extremely yucky on a regular basis and only dedicating 1% of my time to studying- it is long but I guarantee success:

As a caveat to this method, you actually have to go to class for the most part and take notes/pay attention to some extent. If you miss class for some reason find a bish to get you notes on what you missed so you will have it. DO NOT study whatsoever or even think about the content of the class once you leave but at the very least take notes while there so you have the information- you don't even have to understand what is being said just make sure you write it down.

Using this method, you can go to class drunk/high/hungover/etc. and still have success. But you HAVE to go (to an extent- I'd generally miss 3 or so classes a semester, but always tried to get what I missed at the very least)

Underline things that seem important/were emphasized in class, make notations in the margins with acronyms to help you further memorize the information. Place greater emphasis on portions of the material that you are...
