Remember, the curve is insanely good. Review the areas which you are confused or know the least about and the others you should remember from class and what not. Its definitely worth it to review the 12 labs too, since one of them will be a FRQ. Concentrate on processes if you have trouble remembering all the details. You can get at least a few points on the FRQs like that and the readers are generous- they will give you points in statements you may not have intended. You can get a great score even if you lose a large percentage of total points.

Okay so if I know a certain topic/subject your saying that I should just skip it and learn the other stuff?
Don't you think that I should go over each thing just to get all the details?
I'm currently reading Cliffs... do you think that this book is good for the bio exam or should I get a different one?

Cliffs is all you need. Shelve your textbook, you don't need it for last minute prep.

haha i'm in the same situation that you are in
i've just started studying this morning with cliffs.
it's going real smoothly now, taking no more than 40 minutes - an hour with each unit, and i'm thoroughly understanding the material.

Get half the questions right, you get a 3. If you haven't prepped yet, I wouldn't worry too much b/c the curve is crazy. The average person only gets 60 q's right.
