So, you want to get an "A" in this class, do you? Well, here are some tips for you. Hopefully you've stumbled across this page weeks before the first midterm, so you'll be able to adequately follow all the steps. If, however, it's midnight the night before the exam and you're just looking at your notes for the first time, you might want to skip to the end where I talk about cramming. Don't cram. It sucks and you get all tired and irritated and whatnot. Good luck!
