Anyone have the answer to the
English 11 B Semester Exam in connections?
I agree with ramblers suggestions, but since this is your first time taking an Exam, usually the teacher will basically TELL you what to study. (this is because if the class as a whole doesn't do well on the exam it reflects poorly on the teacher) What I did (I have a Master's with a 3.9 GPA) was review ALL my notes, write up flash cards and go over them MILLIONS of times Don't stress! You'll be fine, especially with your grades already as good as they are. Good luck!
