Well concentrating in class and going to class is #1
Dr. Herring discusses certain terms a lot so that's like a hint on the definitions then for the essay...basically whatever seems like an "enumeration" question is fair game for that. Anything from the readings/lecture is fair game for the multiple choice. I've had Dr. Herring (and yes I'm in the class now) in the past and I find her tests are fair.
Hope that helps.
