Some classes are pretty cool for letting you bring in notes, i'm in an international financial management class right now and he lets us bring in 1 page front and back with anything we want, including example problems. I also agree you have to be interested in what you study, it makes it way more enjoyable. Some things just blow I have an econ exam on monday and its a written test so you should be able to bull shit, but the tas grade from a key and you have to have it in verbatim or else you don't get the points, thank god that class is on a curve.
What I really hate is having to study super complicated concepts and theories when all it amounts to is some stupid simple common sense, but the real world answer will not be sufficient for the exam
Case in point, I'm studying cardiopulmonary anatomy & physiology right now, and I was pulling my fricken hair out trying to follow all these pages about Poiseuille's Law and a bunch of "airway resistance" equations, as they relate to a person's breathing. Jeez, a patient could die if I was trying to remember all this crap- and all it boils down to is that air moves faster through a wider, shorter tube than a narrower, longer one. But you would never know that's all they're trying to say
My friends already in the field are telling me to just deal with it and get through the material, then I'll never have to use a lot of it again on the job

if you have to remember stuff that is like listed or grouped, just remember the first letter in each, see if it makes a word or something.
also cheat. shiz. you gotta do what you gotta do, and most of the shit in college is bs. i have barely learned anything, and i barely do anything and i have a 3.2.
put stuff in your phone, your calculator, on your arm under a long sleeve shirt, it doesnt matter. and when you first get your test try to copy all the formulas, etc on to the paper, then you wont need to look anymore
try taking some calculus classes and bullshit thru that....
