Usually 3+ days is best. Prioritize ahead of exams.

I study all through the semester by reading my chapters ahead of classes, I only revise and perfect my knowledge before an exam - That's how you rock them A's baby.

I did that in first year but it became way too time-consuming. I eventually only rewrote notes that were too messy to read. I find that for many courses, it's helpful to just create a summary of important concepts for test studying purposes, but ALWAYS also keep the full notes for reference!
