3. When you first start studying for exams, read the Capsule Summary to get an overview. This will probably take you about one day.

4. Either during exam study or earlier in the semester, do some or all of the Quiz Yourself short-answer questions. You can find these quickly by looking for Quiz Yourself entries in the Table of Contents. When you do these questions: (1) record your short “answer” on the small blank line provided after the question, but also: (2) try to write out a “mini essay” on a separate piece of paper. Remember that the only way to get good at writing essays is to write essays.

5. In the week before the exam, do the 30 multiple-choice questions at the back of the book and the Essay Q&A.

6. Three or four days before the exam, review the Exam Tips that appear at the end of each chapter. You may want to combine this step with step 4, so that you use the Tips to help you spot the issues in the short-answer questions. You’ll also probably want to follow up from many of the Tips to the main outline’s discussion of the topic.

7. The night before the exam: (1) do some Quiz Yourself questions, just to get your thinking and writing juices flowing; and (2) re-scan the Exam Tips (spending about 2-3 hours).

My deepest thanks go to my colleagues at Wolters Kluwer, Barbara Lasoff and Barbara Roth, who have helped greatly to assure the reliability and readability of this and my other books.
